Cardinal Running Club

Competitive running team for boys and girls, grades 3-5 Cross country (fall) and track and field (spring).

Meet tomorrow, 9. 28.17

 

Hi, 

I wanted to send a friendly reminder that we have our second XC meet
tomorrow. Meets are optional so if you are unable to make it, no worries. 

The meet will be held at Overlook Park and the address is 1599 N
Fremont St, Portland, OR 97227. You can begin registering at 4:30pm.
The 3rd and 4th graders will begin the 1,500m at 5pm and the 5th and
6th graders will begin the 2,000m at 5:13pm. The meets are hosted by
Foot Traffic and the entrance fee is $3 (cash only). A parent or
guardian must register each athlete and sign a waiver.

I will be coming from work and will arrive as close to 5pm as I can. A parent of one of our runners as kindly offered to warm the team up for me. Please meet at the big slide at the playground near the starting line. 

As you all probably know, traffic can be brutal at this hour.  Google maps usually tries to guide you on to I-5. If you're coming from the west side, the easiest route is to take 405 and get off on the Kirby St. exit to Interstate Ave. 


If you have any questions, let me know.

Cheers,

Coach Jill 

 

First meet (optional) today!

Hi, 

We're through our first week of practice and off to a great start. We have a very motivated, eager and enthusiastic team!  I'm excited to watch them progress over the season.

I talked to the team today about the meet and what to expect. We've only had two practices and it's the first meet so the number one goal is for them to have fun.

Practice today

Good Morning, Parents!

Look forward to meeting everyone today at 5:30 pm at Chapman Elementary on the front steps. Please try to arrive a few minutes early to allow time to get checked in. .

Hello parents!

Hello Parents, 

Welcome to Runner2Runner Cardinal Running Club cross country!

I am Jill, and your head coach this season.

You should have received an email yesterday from Melissa Hill regarding practice being cancelled today due to the air quality. We were very excited to get started but safety is always our number one priority. 

 Runner2Runner’s mission is to introduce cross country in a safe, positive and supportive environment to young athletes. 

Our first practice will be held on Monday, September 11th at Chapman Elementary and we'll meet on the front steps. 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 and answer any questions you may have. You’re welcome to join us for the entire practice if your schedule permits.

Team information:

  • Practice will be held every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
  • Meets are on the following dates at Overlook Park: 9/14, 9/28, 10/5 & 10/19. I will send more information regarding the meets as we get closer to the dates. 
  • Your child should dress in weather appropriate clothing and wear proper running shoes. Layering works great!
  • 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.
  • We will be in the direct sun so please have your child wear sunscreen, if possible.
  • 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 let me know.

I am very excited to meet you and your runner on Monday, 9/11.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email or contact me by email.

Cheers,

Coach Jill
