Welcome to Runner2Runner Portland east side cross country!
This is Coach Howard Lao and i'm coming back for my 4th season and I’m very excited to be back again!
Runner2Runner’s mission is to introduce track and field training or cross country in a safe, positive and supportive environment to young athletes.
Our first practice will be held on 09/06/17 at Woodstock Park SE 47th Ave & Steele St, Portland, OR 97206 - We will meet by the play structure area.
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.
If you want to want to be an active parent volunteer (setting up cones, doing the warm up lap & drills with us, standing at certain turns around the park cheering the kids on while we do the workouts) let me know! I’d love to get you involved with the team.
Practice will be held every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
Meets are on the Thursdays at Overlook park 09/14 09/28 10/05 10/19
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 email head coach.
We are very excited to meet you and your runner on 09/06 (Wednesday
) If you have any questions, please feel free to email or contact me by phone; 503 820 8687
We are in need of a few volunteers to help at practices and meets. If you are available and interested, please email me and let me know. Thank you in advance for your help!
