Cross Country Try-outs (aka the “Watermelon Run”) takes place Tuesday, August 21st at Polliwog Park. Meet by the Premier Field Snack Stand/Begg Field area. The try-out begins at 4 pm and will consist of a 3-mile run on our Polliwog Park course. COURSE MAP*
We need parent volunteers to help the try-out go smoothly! Please sign up to help monitor the course, bring a case of water and/or provide post-race watermelons! Sign-up to volunteer HERE.
This is the only try-out this year! Spread the word to any friends that are interesting in cross country! The Watermelon Run also functions as a way to qualify for the Hawaii travel trip in September.
*There may be slight modifications to the course due to work being done in the park or on the fields.
