Dear Aggie Women,
I am honored to be assuming the role of Cross Country Captain for this coming season. Big thanks to Liza Rieichert for all her help as I learn the ropes. What I may lack in speedy times, I plan to make up in organization and motivational skills :)
To start things off, I have created a Fall Racing Interest Form. We would appreciate you taking a moment to fill it out, letting us know your racing plans.
Some exciting news - we have added several awesome, speedy women to our ranks this month! I would LOVE to see teams of 5 fielded for these Pacific Association (PA) races, so you gals can win shoes! For those who might not know, our HOKA contract includes a "Shoe Program" in which any PA race team win (5 person team required to win) results in a free pair of HOKA shoes for the 5 scoring ladies. Let's win some shoes!
To start, the two races we want to make the biggest push for a full team at this season are:
- Aggie Open, Saturday Oct 21, Martinez, CA
- PA Finals, Sunday November 19, San Francisco CA
Beyond these two, we will look at the results of the interest form and see which races we have the greatest likelihood of fielding full teams.
As people respond, you can see which races they are interested in by viewing this spreadsheet. I will also follow up next month with an email summarizing the results.
Any questions, uniform needs, etc, please reach out and let me know! Our first XC race is Santa Cruz XC Challenge, August 19th!
