If you miss more than one class, you will receive no credit for the class.  This is a standard set by MBX for summer school accreditation.  Please plan your summers accordingly.  Meet on the first day at Waller Stadium at 6:20 am, dressed in appropriate running attire.  We will be having a paced mile on the track the first day to place students in appropriate training groups. 

Purpose:  Our summer training program is designed to help train and prepare students for the cross country try-out, which will be held the day before school starts.  The try-out will be a three mile cross country race at Polliwog Park on August 20, 2019.  The race is traditionally called “The Watermelon Run” and is followed by a watermelon feast!  Final team rosters will be determined by student’s time and placing within the race.

Save the date: Surf Festival Sand Run, Hermosa Beach Pier August 3rd at 8 am
All athletes will be running or volunteering (if you are a senior athlete!) at this event.

Following the try-out:  Parent meeting will be held at Mira Costa on Thursday, 8/22nd. Coaches will present an intro to the sport and all uniforms and spirit gear orders will be taken at this meeting.
