Post Season Race Opportunity
Sunday November 14th is the Nike Cross Regionals in Sioux Falls. This is opportunity to run another 5K after the high school season is finished. Here is the link to the website with meet information:
NXR Heartland Regional – RunnerSpace.com
NXR HEARTLAND INFOMEET DATE & LOCATION11.14.2021 Yankton Trail ParkSioux Falls, SDSTATES INCLUDEDIA – KS – MN – NE – ND – SD – WI
If you are interested in running in this, please let Coach Birkmeier know by this Friday, October 8th.
The cost is $40 and the Booster Club will register all Andover runners at the same time. This is a “Club” race so athletes cannot wear team uniforms. In the past, the girls and boys get new jerseys that we get screen printed. Once we know who is going to run, Coach Birkmeier will work with the athletes to get those ordered.
We do have a block of rooms reserved and that information will be sent out to those attending. Typically, families will head down on Saturday morning to Sioux Falls. They will preview the course Saturday afternoon. We can plan a team meal on Saturday night.
This is open to any runner, any ability level. They have multiple open races throughout the day.
See Coach Birkmeier with any questions.
