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

The bus leaves at 5:30 am from the school with the first race being at 7:30 am.  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 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

the 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

Parents, please join us at the Booster tent for morning refreshments. We would love to see as many parents and fans at Central Park as possible cheering on our hardworking athletes!

Just a reminder: The coaches request that all parents and spectators stay away from the team tent during the meet. Prior to their race, we need our athletes to focus on their races and after each race, they need to meet at the tent and warm down with their team. We also need them to be available to speak with coaches after their races. Athletes have been directed that after they finish their race and warm down, they can go visit parents and others away from the tent area.

Again, thank you for your continued support of our XC program. Please let me know if you have any questions.  runruhspresident@gmail.com.

 

Snapraise Fundraiser

Posted on September 23, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Parents,

Your student has been asked to participate in our team fundraiser called Snapraise. It is an online-based fundraiser where the student contacts prospective donors via email about our team’s needs.

Success is not defined as being the fastest person on the team, in fact, success in cross country takes time, time to learn and time to train. With high student academic responsibilities, the delicate balancing act is quite a challenge.  The willingness and devotion each of our athletes require is a major commitment. Every team member is required to meet all these expectations. Unfortunately, we fall short financially but with this fundraiser, we will be able to meet our financial goals.

Why MONEY MATTERS:

Cross country is a relatively inexpensive sport, but it still costs money and our support from the school district will not fulfill all our budget requirements. The invitational races require entrance fees, we need stipends for assistant coaches, a budget for team shirts, team bonding activities and transportation to and from the meets.  And some of our athletes cannot afford to purchase uniforms or shoes as regularly as necessary.  Participating in this fundraiser allows our team with its high aspirations on and off the course, to strive to earn greatness.

It is not mandatory and there is no penalty for not participating in the team fundraiser.  We are hoping that our student/athletes will work hard to support their team in reaching its fundraising goals.  Top 5 athletes will win a prize for the most funds raised.

In return our athletes will promise to CONCEDE NOTHING: This question and answer have been our starting line rallying cry and season motto for the past several seasons. Concede means to allow or yield to something to another person or group, as well as to accept and acknowledge defeat. Although the strong current program began from a struggling one, the team has never been willing to begin down any road other than one leading to success. Lack of experience, tough competition, tired legs are not reasons to concede anything. Redondo’s determined spirit will see them through the many races of Cross Country season. The team will be traveling to seven invitationals and two Bay League meets before, along with hosting our two-mile dual meet with Santa Monica and hopefully moving through to CIF.

Not only are we dedicated runners and coaches, but academic leaders on campus. We have a long record of the highest GPA among campus teams and a full list of alums who graduated from Cal-Berkeley, Brown, University of Michigan, Cal Poly SLO, UCLA, LMU, Arizona, Indiana, USC and many, many more.

Thank you for your support and Go Sea Hawks!

Woodbridge XC Invitational

Posted on September 15, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Dear Parents and Athletes,

Saturday our team competes in the exciting Woodbridge Invitational at the Silver Lakes Sports Complex in Norco. The address is 5555 Hamner Avenue, Norco CA.92880.  Athletes should meet the buses in the student parking lot on Diamond at 12:45 PM.  The buses will return after the last race at 8:06 PM.  Again, we ask that parents be in the parking lot ready to pick up when the buses arrive back at Redondo.  The coaches were so appreciative of this effort at the last meet!!

Students should come to the meet dressed in their uniforms and warmups.   Please clearly mark all items with names.  Make sure they have plenty of water/Gatorade as it will be warm during the afternoon hours.  Make sure everyone eats a healthy hearty breakfast, a light lunch and brings healthy snacks.  You may want to send additional money since there will be T-shirts for sale and food trucks where athletes can purchase food AFTER their race.

Below is the website with all pertinent information concerning the meet including location, directions, schedule and parking information.  Plan extra arrival time as parking could be a long walk and traffic to Norco may be heavy.  They have asked us to emphasis that NO DOGS will be allowed anywhere in the race complex.

Our team will be competing in the Gold Division on Saturday.

Woodbridge Meet Schedule 9/21/19

We appreciate all the support of parents at the last meet and hope to see you all at the Woodbridge Invitational cheering on our team. We ask though that parents do not hang out near or in the team tent.  Also, we would appreciate it if parents wait to speak to their athletes after the coaches have met with them and they have completed their required warm down after the race. Thank you very much for your understanding on this.

Thanks again for the incredible support of our team and program and please direct any questions to my email below.

Dear Freshman Parents and Athletes,

Parent Booster Meeting – Tuesday Night!

Posted on September 2, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Good Morning, hope everyone is enjoying your 3-day weekend! What an exciting event this past Thursday at Entradero Park. We can all see how hard our student athletes have trained. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered their time to make sure the event ran smoothly.

REMINDER: September 3rd meeting 7pm. The meeting room is behind the work out room left of the visitor bleachers.

Topics of discussion, fundraisers, team bonding. There will be Redondo COWBELLS for sale!

Parents of athletes going to Portland please stay after to discuss details.

Upcoming Events/Fundraisers

Posted on August 30, 2019 - Filed Under New items | Leave a Comment

Thank you, Coach Bob and Coach Sal, as well as Special Assistant (for life) Carlos for pulling together a fantastic dual-meet in Entradero!

The results will be posted soon on our Website http://runruhs.com/meet-results/  And of course, thank you to all the volunteers who made the event go smoothly and safely. And lastly, with the generous financial support of our families who donated to the Booster Club, we were able to invite the athletes to Taco Dinner. You invested well!

Tidbit: A couple living across the street from Entradero Park saw the kids run and therefore, went into their yard to pick a huge bag of peaches. Then the not-so-young people carried it over to the field. The husband actually used to be a runner and was still wearing his estimated 1960s running shorts.

Enough celebrations as here comes your list of important events.

August 31 and September 2: Practice is on Saturday at 8 am at Golden Gove and Monday at 8 am at the school track.

September 3 at 7 pm: Please attend the parent meeting on Tuesday. The meeting is being held in a room underneath the bleachers – the ones that are in the middle of the two fields.  Please bring questions you might have and cash because you can pick up your tickets for the Comedy Club (see below).

September 8 at 1:45 pm: The summer is not yet over. Come out stand-up paddleboarding. The local Olympus Board Shop on Torrance Blvd. generously supports a Fundraiser for the Team. Included are a lesson, board, paddle, life vest, and huge fun. Bring friends and family. If your athlete is coming on his/her own, make sure to sign the waiver on Tuesday. To reserve your board, please go to https://www.facebook.com/events/2912459165437572  (all students are $30 regardless of age).  This is not a school-sponsored event and you are out there at your own risk. Any participant will get wet. Sunscreen, the cheapest sunglasses you have, and a water squirter from the Dollar Tree are highly recommended.

September 11 at 8 pm: Come join us at the Hermosa Comedy Club. Wear red so we can find the Redondo parents. No children will be admitted! Please purchase your tickets on Tuesday at the parent meeting. What would make this process a lot less painful is if you bring the exact cash (20$ per ticket) and email ahead of time. This is another fundraiser where we have to track the ticket numbers. In your email, please indicate if you are sponsoring a particular athlete for the Portland trip or the team in general.

Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
