Mammoth Summary, School Begins, and Race Info


The Mammoth Crew survived big miles, bears, high altitude, and Coach Horton's cooking to return to San Clemente stronger and fitter then ever! Thank you to all of the athletes, Coach Alison, Nannie, and Bampa for a great week in the mountains. I'd say that you all exceeded what you though you were capable of, and I know you'll take that strength of mind into your future training and racing.

We will be taking a group down to Oceanside on the 20th to run the Wild Duck 5k cross country race to practice race strategy and measure your fitness. This race has a true XC course and you also get a t-shirt with your entry! Please see the link for the entry form below. I need your entries no later than Friday's practice. You can email the form, take a picture, or bring it on Friday.

With the start of the school year approaching, it will be important for you to prepare each day to meet all of your responsibilities, both academic and athletic. Please be sure to have a good lunch/snack each day and don't forget to bring two water bottles to school. If you are not fueled and hydrated properly, you will not be able to perform to your potential. Your teammates are relying on you to do your part.

Keep running,
Coach Horton
