ZMKW Cross Country 2021


June, 2021


In this letter you will find a list of things that you need to get taken care of as well as answers to any questions that you might have about the upcoming season.  I will try to keep it brief.   

I strongly encourage you and your parents to attend one of the parent, athlete, and coach meetings held at either ZMHS or KWHS prior to the start of the season.    The PAC Meeting at ZM will be held on August 10, 2021, at 6PM.  


Here are some other important things for you to remember prior to the start of practice:

  1. Practice will begin on August 16 @ 8AM in front of the high school in Zumbrota for all runners in grades 7-12.
  2. Remember, you will not be allowed to practice until you have an athletic physical, filled out the MSHSL Health Questionnaire, and paid your activity fee.This information must be on file in the offices in either Kenyon or Zumbrota.
  3. Buy a good pair of running shoes-not cross trainers or basketball shoes. It is important that you do this soon so that you have an opportunity to run in them before practice starts. This helps break in the shoe and prevents blisters. Last season’s track shoes need to be replaced. One thing, prices across the board are up on these and many brands are in short supply as of May/June.
  4. The race distances are as follows: V/JV Boys-5k (3.106) miles , V/JV Girls-5k (3.106 miles) and JH B/G-1-2 miles.
  5. I will meet with those who want to run in a group on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8AM in Zumbrota at 7:30AM.We will be done by 8:30AM.We will meet in front of the primary school.(Starting 7/13)
