Summer School runs from Monday, June 19th to Thursday, July 27th. Class is from 6:20 am – 8:00 am, Monday – Thursday and at 8:00-9:30 am on Friday. If you miss more than two classes, 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 during the last week of summer school. The try-out will be a three mile cross country race at Polliwog Park on Monday, July 24th at 5 pm. 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 5th at 8 am
