Saturday Summer Runs

In an effort to stay connected to Youth athletes past and present, we will be (very loosely) organizing a group run on Saturdays during the summer. Beginning THIS SATURDAY (June 30th) we will meet at 9am at the Michael Johnson track for a run. Various BTC pros and youth coaches will be in attendance as their schedules allow. There will be no real "coaching" at these meet ups, just a gathering point for everyone to set out on their Saturday runs. As such, we advise that only older middle schoolers whose parents feel comfortable letting them run by themselves attend. If you have a younger athlete and want to come and run with them, that is great as well! Just be aware that the structure will not be as formal as practice in the fall. 

Current/former BTC athletes, parents, siblings, friends, teammates, etc are all welcome! If you want to go for a run and you like BTC, come on out! We hope that this will be a fun, low pressure way to build community and little bit of fitness over the summer months.

Shamrock Run

Bowerman Team Entries for Shamrock

Please take a look at the list below. If you see your name I have your number and tee-shirt. If you think you entered as part of the team and you don't see your name please email me at chris.cook@nike.com.

Unfortunately, I just found out the Mia Hamm reception @ Nike is not able to give these out this year. If you want your bib and tee shirt before race day you are welcome to pick it up from me at my house in Lake Oswego - 940 Cumberland Rd, 97034 one evening this week. Or email me at chris.cook@nike.com if you'd like to try and pick it up from me directly at Nike during the day.

Any numbers that haven't been picked up I will bring to the Bowerman Tent on Race day. The tent will be in the usual spot just north of the start on the grass.

Cheers, Coach Cookie.
