Each year as the season starts - Runner’s Plus and Springboro Cross Country team up to get athletes into some great new shoes and spikes for the season. Below are the dates and discounts available. Shoes are one of the most important pieces of equipment for a runner. Shoes generally last 1 ½ - 3 months depending on the runner. An athlete averaging 40 miles a week will hit about 300 miles in 2 months! So - June and July, then August and September, and maybe even an October and November Pair.

CANOE TRIP INFO
It will be on July 12th at noon. Every teammate will have to pay $20 to kayak, canoe, or go on a raft. There is a waiver that needs to be signed and every person must do this or they cannot go. It is extremely important that everyone shows up an hour to 40 minutes prior departure at noon. Before departure, every person will need to pay, make sure the waiver is complete, get their lifejackets, and determine who they will be kayaking, canoeing, or rafting with if they choose to not go alone. The path is a bit over 3 miles and can take anywhere between an hour to 3 hours depending on how long you want to take and if you take breaks on the side beaches. It is recommended to wear water shoes and bring as little as possible. For example, when kayaking I only bring my phone and water. I would highly recommend having a large lunch before kayaking since it will be awhile and applying sunscreen before we leave. Lastly, I would recommend leaving a towel in your car post kayaking because you may be sandy and wet. If anyone needs rides please reach out to upperclassman they will gladly take you. If there are any questions, let me know!

RALPH E WADE UPDATE
Thank you to our team of parents for coming out Tuesday Night! We have begun the process of prepping for our Ralph E Wade 5k fundraiser. It is our hope and expectation that every runner in town comes out to our 5k and supports our team. Even with this, we hope parents and families will help get the word out!
This is our biggest fundraiser for the team. Our fundraisers have future implications. Our goals include on practice field storage, improvements to our practice course, strength training equipment for runners, and recovery equipment. This fundraiser has three components: REGISTRATION for the 5K brought in almost half of our fundraising revenue; SPONSORSHIP for the 5k in 13 Sponsors almost matched our registration; and RAFFLE - the fun part of the fundraiser involved a raffle for prize packs.
With this 5K fundraiser, we did not have any other fundraisers for the season…and how can you help?
1) SPONSORSHIP - do you have a business or work for an organization wanting to reach out to the community in a small, low cost way. Our sponsorships are very reasonable. Below is our 2 page sponsorship letter for businesses!
2023 SPONSORSHIP LETTER
2) REGISTER AND SELL - Sign up for our 5K! Race our 5K! And get others! Share the link and share the registration form. The best way to sign up is at Speedy-Feet!
2023 Ralph E Wade Registration - This is a paper flyer. The only registration will be up on Speed Feet soon (www.speedy-feet.com)
3) RAFFLE PRIZES - Not all businesses or organizations like to sponsor, but can help with our raffle. You can help also. In the past, businesses have donated gift cards, services, autographed memorabilia, tickets to an event such as a Reds game, passes to places…Do you have time to reach out to organizations? There are plenty of ways to help.
RAFFLE DONATION SIGN UP GENIUS
4) SERVE - On July 22nd, we will need some course managers, course tear down, registration table volunteers, finish line volunteers, raffle volunteers, and clean up… We will do a sign up 2 weeks out from the event.
Thank you for being a part of this big team event! Let us make it the best one yet!

Springboro HS Cross Country has a facebook page. This page is a great place to get information, post pictures, and meet our fans! Check it out!
SOCIAL MEDIA NEEDS
Are you good with photos, videos, and editing? If so, reach out to coach Adams to help promote our program throughout the season. One area our program is looking to expand on is our social media presences, which is not my current wheelhouse. We know phone photography and video editing technology have allowed many teams, students, and others to spread the word about their programs in a short time. If this is you, please reach out to coach Adams on how we are looking to engage the community and student body on the great things Cross Country has to offer.
Ralph E Wade
The Ralph E Wade 5K will be back on July 22nd, 2023! We had such a great gathering and looking forward to another fantastic year. Look for an upcoming email looking for volunteers to coordinate our fundraising effort. We will be looking for sponsors for the race and prizes for the raffle! Please let me know if you are interested in helping. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
