You may be wondering why you haven’t seen your favorite youth runners at local track meets this year. The Harriers are primarily a distance running team, with a focus on cross country racing. In the past, the team has participated in track meets to stay conditioned for the fall XC season. The coaches realized the speed work required for track training was not conducive to the long-distance work necessary for XC peak performance. So in 2019, the spring season is being used for XC training, with the Harriers participating in a few local 5k races as well as a couple of FLYRA track meets in order to qualify for the State Meet.
