October Updates

Here’s what’s going on at Whisper over the next couple of months.

  • RESULTS: Click here for the Harvest Classic results.

  • HOTELS AT JO's: We have 30 rooms booked at the Holiday Inn Express in Seattle and 20 at the HIE in Eugene. Please see the Calendar, specific dates 11/16 and 11/23, to book your rooms if you intend on traveling to the meet on the Friday before the JO races.

  • PRACTICE DAYS: As we get into the fall months, practices are now 5:30-6:45pm on weekdays. Please pay attention to the mid-week practices on the WR Calendar. Because of MS and HS District races this month, we are having practices on Wednesday's or Thursday's. The change is due to the XC District races and Halloween.

  • Headlamps: Sunset is now earlier than the end of our practices. Please have your child bring a reflective vest, belt, or anything that makes illuminates their torso. Also, please be sure they bring a headlamp. These items can be found at most running stores, athletic stores, or even Fred Meyer. They can also be purchased online.

  • SPRINT PRACTICE ON HOLD: The start of practice will soon begin in the dark, making it impossible to work on sprint technique. Until Christmas break, when the kids have days off from school, we are placing Sprint workouts on hold. If a sprinter wishes to join us for the distance workouts, they are definitely welcome to do so (total distances at workouts will be roughly 1.25 mile warm-up, 2-3miles of interval work, .5-1 mile cool-down.

  • SUNDAY EVENTS: WHY Racing GF's Run for a Cure on 10/13, Seton Catholic Open House on 10/20, and WHY Racing's Scary Run on 10/27. Whisper is a WHY Racing sponsor, meaning we don't run at these events. If your child (or you) would like to race in these events, you'll need to register him/her via the WHY website. For Whisper, these events are merely for the promotion of youth running and Winter Training.

If you have any questions, or text or call Coach Dave. 360-989-0935.
