La Reina High School Summer XC All Comer Races 2018

2018 Jul thru Aug :

Every summer local High Schools and Colleges put up these fundraising races that help students prepare for their upcoming XC season. We are not racing these as a team; however, it would be a good idea to jump into these races to fine-tune your racing for our upcoming USATF XC season.  Below is a list of local popular races and a little blurb about them.

      THURSDAYS – If you are up for a drive and a challenging course, then this is your adventure race. It’s at 1K ft elevation (trust us, you will feel your lungs burn), it’s desert hotness, it’s dusty, it’s sandy, it’s a hilly course and you got some strong competition from local HS runners. The race is put on by the High Desert Running Club. Our friend/race director Alan Brown is always happy to see  NBB make the drive and participate in his challenging course. Entry is FREE but they have donation boxes and no change so if you bring a $20 bill that’s what it will cost you so get change ahead of time or not if you feel charitable. The races start at 6:45 pm
