First, we want to say congratulations to all the BTC Youth Athletes who were able to come out and race yesterday at the Nike Portland XC meet. All the hard work at practice is starting to show! For race results, please visit here.
Looking ahead, we will have three great practices and then get ready to race on both Thursday, October 10th or Saturday, October 11th. Both are local races that is easy to get to so we recommend all youth to participate in one meet if possible. Please only plan on racing one not both races.
Meet at the Leif Erikson trail head at the end of NW Thurman Street in Portland at 1pm on Sundays. This is a social event and intended for families to run together. A great opportunity to meet other BTC families. The younger athletes will start out with a 2.5 mile run and the older athletes will start at around 5 miles or whatever is comfortable. We will slowly add to the distance from week to week. Running will be fun, easy paced, and conversational. Rain or shine.
This is a parent/volunteer-led event. Parents who are not running should check-in with the leaders before the run starts (i.e. please don't simply drop off your child without knowing who they are running with).
For more information or questions regarding Sunday Runs please email email@example.com or Chris.firstname.lastname@example.org
We know that there are still some athletes looking to purchase a jersey for this year. Reminder that if you intend to race this year you must have the 2019 uniform. You can purchase the uniform below in the youth store. Once the purchase is made, the uniform will be brought to practice where you will be able to show your purchase confirmation. If you have received a jacket at practice or a race but have not paid for it, please submit payment here online.
If the cost of a uniform or any other financial burden associated with racing deters the attendance at competitions or practices, please reach out to email@example.com about at-need scholarships and other ways we can help anyone who wants to be part of the program be involved.
Youth Jackets are at the screen printers and will be available in the next week or two at practice. You can follow the link below to the youth store to purchase the jacket along with other youth items (such as last year’s rain jacket).
