Practice and meet information

Hi Parents,
I wanted to update you all with some new information I have received.
The first is we won’t hold a practice this Wednesday due to the City Relays Track meet at Cleveland. Upon further discussion I don’t think it will get done in time giving us enough time to have a quality practice. So I will just see you all tonight.
The second is the Grant location situation, I have gotten confirmation from the meet director that they are held at the original Grant location in North East Portland.
Very confusing, I do apologize for that.
If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out either by email, or by phone.
-Coach Howard

Practice begins today! March 19, 2018


We are starting the track season tomorrow, woohoo!! A few tips and reminders, as well as the email I sent out last weekend to new parents below.
Location; The Cleveland High School track is about 3 blocks East of the actual Cleveland high school. Due to the construction/other events in the area parking maybe hard. If you choose to park on 33rd ave (which is fine) the gate on that end might be locked, so you'll either have to walk along Powell, or Franklin. 
Finding R2R;
At 5:30 you will find the high schoolers finishing their practice, LAX there and the middle school team with about 30 minutes left of their practice. You can put your stuff in the stands i'll put cones on one end, then we will meet around the area of the finish line to do the check ins.
We were going to go with 6pm - 7pm like last season, and avoiding the middle school team but decided to start a tad earlier to do the check ins / warm ups and thus giving the athletes more time to do their actual events. 
Feel free to email me at Howard@runner2runner.com or texting me at 503 820 8687.
See you soon!
