Runners invited to hit the trail this summer

The Sisters High School cross country team invites runners of all ages from the community to join team members for informal summer runs. Formal practices for the team don’t begin until August 16, but the team has put together four opportunities a week for low-key training runs for all experience levels.

Coach Charlie Kanzig views the summer runs as important to the upcoming season and also sees the value of offering scheduled times for anyone who would like to join in.

“The biggest thing is to have a consistent time to meet,” said Kanzig. “Some of the high school kids will begin with very easy run/walks, while others are prepared to go for longer miles. Participants will decide as individuals how far they will go.”

Kanzig views cross country as an avenue of a lifetime of running, which is why he sees value in inviting adults to the informal get-togethers.

The schedule is as follows:

Monday: 7 p.m. from the Tollgate Pool.

Tuesday: 7:30 a.m from the high school track.

Wednesday: 7 p.m. from the Village Green Park.

Fridays: 7:15 a.m. from the Village Green Park.
