Shoes - All participants must wear running shoes at practices and meets.
Any type of shoe listed as “running” is okay.
Road running shoes will have a flatter tread on the bottom and often feel lighter-weight. However, road shoes do not provide as much traction and grip for the runner.
Trail running shoes have a more pronounced tread on the bottom and give the runner more grip and traction on grass & trails. However, trail running shoes may feel a little heavier.
Choose the type of shoe that feels best to you.
Attire - Runners should wear appropriate attire for the weather. Shirts will be worn at all times.
For colder temperatures, wear layers and bring a hat and gloves.
If you choose to wear spandex or leggings, shorts must be worn over the top.
You do not need to wear your team uniform to practice - except for Team Photo day.
Water - Bring a full water bottle to each practice.
Note for Parents - We recommend you keep some extra towels & plastic bags in your car for possible wet & muddy shoes/runners if we run in the rain.
We suggest runners bring & use bug spray as the mosquitos can get bad.
