MARS XC In Full Swing

We are into the mud now, with November right around the corner.

MARS continues its fall racing season this Sunday November 1 at Sunnybrook 8K XC.  The race is at 1 pm and we will depart via carpool from Huntsville High School at 9 am sharp.  We expect to be home between 5-6pm.  You get an extra hour of sleep Saturday night because of Daylight Savings so put away your excuses.  Information on entering XC races can be found here.

MARS Lands in Vermont

Muskoka Algonquin Runners (MARS) will be sending a dozen high school runners to Craftsbury Outdoor Centre’s High School Running Camp July 7-13 (departing July 6), 2013. The camp is located in Craftsbury Common, Vermont and is coached by Olympic 10,000m bronze medalist (1996 Olympics) and three time World Cross Country Running Champion, Lynn Jennings. So far, ten of the 12 spots are filled and the camp will be capped at 30 runners total. Interested teens in high school or entering high school in the fall of 2013 can contact us through our Contact page to request more information.

The camp and other training, racing and social running options will be discussed at the club’s first meeting, March 19 from 7-9 pm (drop in) at the Active Living Center in the Summit Center. Membership forms will be available then and we welcome all interested runners.
