Welcome to Runner2Runner cross country!
I am Coach Howard, and your head coach this season. I can be reached at 503 820 8687 or by email. I work Monday - Friday 9am to 5pm so texting might be best during these hours.
Runner2Runner’s mission is to introduce track and field training in a safe, positive and supportive environment to young athletes
Our first practice will be held on 09/12 at Woodstock City Park (SE 47th Ave, Portland, OR 97206)
We will meet at the play structures . Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to check in and get settled.
For the first practice, we will begin with introducing ourselves and going over expectations for the season so please plan on sticking around for a bit. You’re welcome to stick around for the entire practice if your schedule permits.

Practice will be held every Monday and Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm. Meets are bi weekly on Thursday held at Overlook Park (more info to come).
Your child should dress in weather appropriate clothing and wear proper running shoes. Layering works great! I have attached a coupon to Foot Traffic for gear!
Have your child consume a light snack 1.5 to 1 hours before each practice and meet. Please avoid dairy, sugar and high fat foods. Hydration is extremely important so please be sure your child drinks plenty of water prior to practice.
Bring a filled water bottle to each practice.
If your child has asthma or allergies, please have them bring their inhaler and EpiPen with them to each practice.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure to check your child out before leaving practice. For safety purposes, you must be present for them to check out and if someone other than a parent will be picking your child up, please let me know in advance.
If your child is going to miss practice or a meet, please email me.
We need parent volunteers to help practice run smoothly. Duties will vary, but may include helping with check-in, watching over our personal items, setting up equipment, timing, taking pictures, bathroom breaks and assisting with the various events. If you are available and interested, please email me and let me know. Thank you in advance for your help!
