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.
We are looking for someone to make the End of Season Video. If you are interested, please contact Teri at email@example.com
We are also in need of photos and videos. So, if you have any that you would like to share, please let a Board Member know.
We just received word we have a bus for today. Bus leaves Andover at 1:30 and then heads to Oak View to pick up runners.
So far there is no confirmation on a bus, we will have to move forward assuming the runners will need a ride to the meet.
The coaches want the kids to arrive at least one hour prior to race time. The schedule is below, as well as the address for the St. Michael Rec. Center. Coach Clark will be turning in a 1:15 early dismissal to the office just in case a bus does become available.
St. Michael Rec. Center
3150 Lander Ave. NE,
St. Michael MN 55376
The rec center is located on the southern edge of St. Michael right off of Country Road 19. As you drive south on County Road 19, turn east(left) onto 32nd street, go about ¼ mile, then road veers to right down the hill to Rec. Center.
