Brashier Middle College Cross Country

2017 Summer Running Info & Schedule

For the 2017 Cross Country season, Brashier Middle College will again field a Varsity Boys team (12 runners) and a Varsity Girls team (12 runners).  Brashier Cross Country is competitive: each of our teams will likely be ranked in the Top 7 in the State and Top 3 in the Region in preseason polls.

A tryout will determine the makeup of each team.  On August 9 & 11, competitive runs will be held on the Brashier course. (Please note: These dates are prior to the start of school on August14.)  Runners will run both days, their placements in these races will be averaged, and the top 12 boys and top 12 girls will comprise the 2017 Varsity squads. Practice will begin in the afternoons on the first day of school.

For this reason, summer running is vital.  Beginning Tuesday, June 6, I will offer 2 opportunities each week to run together: Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  This will provide 10 weeks of training, leading up to tryouts in August. These runs are not mandatory; you are free to run on your own and should be doing so on the other days of the week. You should run a minimum of 3 days a week this summer, either on your own or with the team, if you would like to compete for a spot on the Varsity teams in the Fall.

Each of our team runs this summer will begin at 8:00 AM and end by 9:15 AM.  You will find a schedule of dates and locations listed below.  Please get in the habit of bringing your own fluids to these summer runs, and wearing proper athletic clothing and footwear. 

If you were a member of the 2016 team and continue to get my text messages, I have all the contact information I need from you for the time being.  All other runners will need to provide me a cell phone number so I can communicate with you via text message.

One final, important note: In order to take part in summer workouts with the team, runners will need an up-to-date Physical (the schoolís Physical form completed by a physician).  To assist with this, Brashier will have a physician on site to perform physicals on Monday, May 22, 2:00-5:00 PM in the Brashier Gym.  Cost will be $10.  The Physical form can also be downloaded from the link below and taken to your family physician.

If you or your parents have questions at any time, please let me know.  Iím looking forward to another great season of BMC XC!
