Parent-Runner Information Night

This will be a night packed full of excitement! We will begin by celebrating those who take part in the USATF Junior Olympic cross-country meets held 11/10, 11/17, and 12/8. Next, Winter Training information will be discussed and the schedule distributed. This will provide a wonderful opportunity to meet the Whisper Coaches, Pacers, and other Whisper runners, as well as a time to ask questions from coaches or parents who have children currently training with Whisper.

We look forward to an amazing night! It is our hope that you can join us for this celebration and information gathering, with cake to follow!

In the meantime, if you would like to reach out and connect with Coach Dave, click here to be connected with the Contact page, where you can fill out information around your child’s current running situation.

Travel: The location of this race is Woodland Park, just north of Seattle.

Lodging: In the past we have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, which is a few miles from the park. There is also a pool, so be sure to bring a swimsuit!

Dinner: There are several options, but in the spirit of distance running, we be having dinner at the Tutta Bella at 7pm.  Click here for the Tutta Bella website, menu, and location.  This venue is less than a mile from the hotel, so we will plan to walk.

Trico 1A League Championships

Race: This is the Trico League Championship meet, where last year we cleaned house (Whisper 29, La Center 51, Wind River 63), placing first of fives teams.  Let's do our best to earn back-to-back championships!

Start Time: The middle school and club race will begin at 3:40pm, with the boys and girls running together.  High school race to follow. 

Itinerary of sorts: Coach Dave will register all interested runners.  Try your best to arrive as close to 2:45pm as possible, but if you cannot get your child there until 3:15pm because of school, that is okay, just let Coach know.  We will plan to meet at a picnic table near the start/finish area to distribute bibs and complete our team warm-up together.
