UNSANCTIONED SUMMER CROSS TEAM EVENTS
June 27th (Sun) – On Mountain Training (obstacle course) at Blue Mountain
July 17th (Sat) – Rafting down river – Everyone to bring their own raft, tube, kayak, paddle board, etc. Not thru an organized company. We will organize this ourselves. Simple individual water rafts/ tubes are just fine for this event.
Aug 14th (Sat) – Boating on Beltzville Lake – A few of the parents have boats. If they would be willing to bring their boats again, that would be great. We can all then go swimming, tubing and wake boarding. Great day out. We will go back to either Westerman’s or Hughes house afterwards for a cookout. (For those with Boats, please let us know if you are able to bring your boat this year. Thanks!)
Aug 29th (Sun) – TBD – Please vote on one of the following events – Paintball, Dutch Springs, Sky Zone or Big Snow
Sept 18th (Sat) – Hike Appalachian Trail.
Oct 3rd (Sun) – Yoga with Ankita – This will focus on stretching and ideas for clearing the mind before a race. Will hold this event at the Hughes house. Please bring yoga mat if you have one. If not, a towel. Rain or shine – We will hold a barbecue afterwards.
Every Sunday in November, Blue Mt has held dry land training at the Mountain in the past. It did not occur last year due to Covid. We are hoping that it will take place again this year.
