Mother Nature Is Rumbling... Peck Farm Cancelled

Unfortunately, both the radar and the lightning in the area will force our first cancellation of the summer.  The radar doesn't seem to have cooperative weather until some time after 9am.  Please watch for a window of opportunity to get out and run today.

DON'T FORGET, Juniors and Seniors, that we have the Kids Running Camp tonight at 5pm, at Harter Middle School. We will play running games with the elementary students, from 5-6pm.  We love the experienced extra hands (and feet!) in these games.

Watch later today, for details on COLE'S RUN, which is Saturday, June 28th. Cole Rutter is an athlete on our team, and there is a special benefit run which we intend to participate in.  There will be online registration necessary for your attention.

Welcome Back, Knights! Summer Camp is Here...

After a full school year of exciting sports seasons, coupled with hard work in the classroom, most are ready to kick their feet up and relax a bit.  Our preparations for the upcoming season will prevent us from getting too comfortable.  This summer of training is designed to help you meet your year end goals in cross country.

Our camp begins today, and I couldn't be more excited. We bring back high quality runners to a program which boasts IHSA State Team qualifications in 5 of the last 6 years.  It is never an expectation that we qualify, rather it is a tradition of Kaneland runners who put in the effort from June to November that often times will see their dreams come to fruition.

Use the paperwork provided at camp to help you set your goals, and allow the camaraderie of the team (yes, even at 6am... four days a week) to help you remain motivated and dedicated to those outcomes you establish.

As always, your coaches are here to help you.
