Season practices have started! Monday through Friday 3:30 -5:00. Meet at the football scoreboard.
New athletes welcome. Let's get ready for a GREAT season!
Cross Country training always involves a mix of team practices and running on your own. Here are some tips:
Pirate Summer Training Guidelines
Applicable Every Summer - and Beyond!
1. Turn in our physical and MBHS athletic forms as soon as possible - ideally before summer begins.
2. Follow our training schedules consistently and build mileage gradually.
3. Attend team practices if we are in town.
4. Make training the most important thing we do every day aside from eating, sleeping, family requirements and other essential activities.
5. Keep our feet in good running shoes.
6. Find a running buddy or group of teammates to train with on days when there is no team practice.
7. Do as much of our running as possible on forgiving surfaces - dirt, grass, and beach hardpack.
8. Swim (the best cross-training for distance runners).
9. Have fun!
Our winning tradition in Cross Country goes back to 1967! We want YOU to join the Long Royal Blue Line!
