CiF Finals Saturday November 23 & Banquet

Posted on November 17, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Athletes and Families:

  1. On Saturday, November 23, the girl’s varsity team and Christoph as individual runner are starting in the CiF Finals. The bus leaves at 6 am (please verify on our Website in case that changes) at the school. If your child wants to go out to support the team, Bob can take more athletes on the bus. Please purchase the student entrance ticket online ahead of time! Girls run at 9:45 am, Christoph runs at 11:00; Girls ceremony 11:20; Boys ceremony 12:05. It is a big deal that the athletes made it that far – I bet they would really appreciate their teammates support!
  2. The planning of the banquet (Monday December 9) is in full swing. There will be a raffle and if you happen to own or know a business that would like to donate content for a raffle basket, please let us know! The event will be catered this year (paid by Booster club money) but we still need lots of help setting the event up. The email to sign up for volunteers will be coming soon.

Practice & CIF

Posted on November 8, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Congratulations to all our Bay League Runners and a Great Thank You to all the parents who came out to cheer for the team! Coaches Bob and Sal were – as always – fantastic and Assistant Carlos once again spent his afternoon taking care of the athletes! In case you aren’t aware of it, Carlos’ two boys have long ago graduated from Redondo Running and Carlos is still coming out to support the team.

The girls varsity team advanced to the CIF Preliminaries and the boys varsity team might have an opportunity to advance as “at-large” to CIF – Coach Bob will find out on Saturday if the application was accepted. There is a method to the madness to figure this out, I guess, but at this point:  It is not clear which boys get to go to CIF. Please have your athletes check with Coach Bob and PLEASE CHECK HERE FOR UPDATES!

So we have three training groups now:

CIF Girls: Monti, Victoria, Reika, Jaclyn, Cansino, Peyton, Eva K, Julia, Madison B, Vanessa, Malia, Sydney H

CIF Boys: Christoph, Jackson, Daniel as individual plus hopefully the entire team as “at-large”

All athletes: Track is just around the corner

What this means in terms of practice:

Friday, Nov 8: All athletes have regular practice after school

Saturday, Nov 9: 8 am Malaga Cove for CIF girls and CIF potential boys (Coach Bob will let them know)

Monday, Nov 11: 8 am at Redondo Track for CIF girls and CIF boys (we will know by then & update)

All athletes:

Nov. 8, 12, 14: All athletes have practice Friday, Tuesday, and Thursday as part of their regular school PE.

Nov. 18, 19, 21: The two weeks after that, the athletes are on a mandatory two week RUNNING break, however, they show up in exercise clothes to their “regular school PE” and do exercises – just no running.

Dec 2:  Once back in school after Thanksgiving, track practice starts.

WEDNESDAY October 30, 2019: Yearbook Picture & Warrior Mile

Posted on October 28, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Families and Athletes,

  1. Yearbook Picture: The yearbook picture of the team will be taken this Wednesday after school. The Athletes need to bring their uniforms. Varsity should bring their white uniform (or better yet, bring both). After the photo is taken, the athletes will go home.
  2. Warrior Mile: The athletes will meet at 5:30 pm at West Torrance High School for the Warrior Mile! The actual races start at 6:30 pm with an open race at 6:15 pm (I guess siblings could and should be part of this fun night). The races are seeded to become faster as the night goes on with the last race being around 8:30 pm. If at all possible, please have your child stay to the end to support the team.

Wednesday October 23 & Saturday October 26

Posted on October 20, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Wednesday:

Coach Bob organized for nutritionist Kerry Sharp to present to the athletes. After practice is finished around 5 pm, the athletes should meet in the media room. Kerry will present for approximately 35 minutes and will stay for questions. Parents are cordially invited as well.

 

Saturday:

Mt. Sac Invitational http://events.mtsac.edu/ccinvite/datesandtimes.htm

Update:

Please note that it is a long walk from the parking lot to the spots where you can see most of the races or where you can drop off the water and snacks at the team tent. I am planning to distribute the water bottles in different backpacks and bags so that it is easier to carry.

As this is one of the tougher courses to run and high temperatures are predicted, the course might change slightly. Your child will just need to listen carefully to Coach Bob’s instruction. PLEASE make sure your child drinks lots of water now and the next three days. Mt. Sac has some additional medical personnel at the racecourse stationed near the finish line. 

The bus leaves at 6:00 am from school.  It looks like all athletes might have finished their races by 1 pm. All athletes must go on the bus to and back from the event, even if you are driving out as well. On Wednesday, feel free to look for a parent carpool partner! Details about parking and entrance fees are available on the Website. Bring cash!

Coach Bob will discuss the individual entrees with the athletes tomorrow. We will update the Website accordingly! Please keep checking http://runruhs.com/

Mt. Sac is a “must see” event – the world’s largest cross country invitational according to their website. There are several races on the course at the same time, dust flying, runners flying down a hill and then making a 90 degree turn … You have to see it to believe it. As always, please make sure to only drop snacks and water at the team tent and then leave the athlete area immediately.

According to the Mt. Sac Website Team Entries

http://events.mtsac.edu/ccinvite/info/confirmations/HS/TeamEntriesHS.pdf

Redondo Athletes are in the following race numbers 59 Sweepstake and then 71, 74, 75, 76, and 77 and you can look up their scheduled times and results here (Race Results)
