Additional racing opportunity
TENTATIVE: As of right now the Wisco Mile will happen on Saturday July 18th MORE INFO HEREhttp://www.wiscomile.com/ This is an aged based Mile competition, as well as a 5k. Again, this is for all ages 8 and up. I am not sure what it will look like this year, but I spoke to the Meet Director and he still believes he can meet that date. So stay tuned. I will be at the meet and will send updates as we get closer.
As we move to Phase 2 of the recovery plan, we will start having some drop in 1 hour workouts that people can come to. We will have a sprints coach and a distance coach at each practice. We aren’t sure if we will have someone there for long jump. It will all be based on the availability of the coaches and these workouts will be free, basically a short practice.
