This is an optional race for our athletes. It is scheduled to take place on* 11/20/21* at Shalimar Golf Club in Tempe. Athletes come from CO, UT, NM, AZ, NV to participate in this exciting, fast paced race. The kids do not race in Corona uniforms. Therefore, we need to purchase singlets for the kids to wear. We will need to start getting a head count to guarantee that we have shirts in time for the race. NXR Southwest Regional Race Interest Form

Third, THANK YOU to all the athletes that came to the Kyrene Middle School District Cross Country meet on Wednesday, October 13. There was a sea of orange, gold and black all over the course. We heard you cheering on all the athletes!
Have a great week!
Practice will be at 2:30pm tomorrow!!!!
Also, the Kyrene District cross country meet is tomorrow, 4pm, at Pueblo Middle School. 360 S Twelve Oaks Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85226
After our Practice we would like as many CdS Cross Country runners available to go to the Kyrene meet. Our athletes attending is a very good way to gain exposure for our program. TAC and I can shuttle kids to Pueblo, or they can drive themselves. But, we will not be returning to Ocorna. If you are picking up your child, please do so at Pueblo. The Kyrene meet should be finished around 5:30 or 6.Attendance for tomorrow is highly encouraged but not required.
