Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Cross Country Summer 2014


TO:  All students who are considering joining the MHS Cross Country Team

From:  Coach Hollenbeck, 631-2948

Cross country is a sport where everyone can experience success.  Each runner works to be their personal best while sharing the running experience with a group of motivated, supportive and spirited teammates.  We welcome you to the team.


Join in these optional workouts starting July 7th


Mondays, Wednesday, & Friday 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Strength Training sessions and Ploy’s on Wednesday after lifting  Meet at MHS weight room.


Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM AND OR 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Team runs lead by your team captains.  Meet at City Forest, north parking lot off Monroe.


I also encourage you to be putting in some miles on your own, especially if you plan to attend the Cross Country Camp on August 4 – 8 in Traverse City.  I recommend a minimum of 20 to 25 miles per week of running.  Details about the camp will be distributed later this summer. Note: you will need a physical and the cost is now $35 per athlete.  You do need to know that the camp is a blast and you will want to be part of it.  I would like to hear about your workouts this summer.  Please let me know how you are doing, share your accomplishments, your pace, your mileage and of course you may share your aches and pains as well.

“Only one person and one person only will determine how good of a runner you become…

You will become as good as you let yourself be.

That one person is YOU
