Our club trains for two USATF sanctioned competitions, one in XC and one in Track & Field. These meets are training goals of the Spring/Summer Track Session and Late Fall XC Sessions. Not all athletes choose to compete in these competitions, but still train with the club. Athletes who choose to go beyond the basic club training and compete go through the following process:
