Midweek Update: ILH Meet at CORP & IXCI Next Week

Hi Everyone,


Meet #1

This Saturday is the first meet of the season at CORP. Please check the schedule page for timeline and course map. The bus is not mandatory, but make sure you are on time for the team warmup.


Thank you to the parents leading the efforts in the team snacks and cold towels. If I remember correctly, IXC was the first team to start the post-race cold towel trend, and now every team is doing it.


Uniform & Picture Taking

Uniform pickup today at 4pm. Meet as usual for practice & we will send you guys in groups. Change into your uniform tops for yearbook picture taking after.


Don't worry if you can't make it to practice today. Just be sure to pickup tomorrow. You won't be in the group photo, but don't worry your name will be tagged.


IXCI Kualoa & Pasta Feed Signup

Next week is our crown jewel! Saturday, September 14, 2019, marks the 21st running of the ʻIolani Cross Country Invitational at Kualoa. You really appreciate the pomp and circumstance of our invitational once you are a part of the action!


This year's invitational is limited to top 14 runners from 9th - 12th grade only, with the intermediates taking a one-year sabbatical. Entries notwithstanding, this meet is not possible without our IXC family support. We do ask and look forward to everyone's coming out to the meet to support the team and help in making this meet a reality for the runners. Please please please, signup for a Kualoa / Pasta Feed shift at the link here.


Signup early to make sure you get a shift you prefer. Our coaches will be spread out all over the meet to work alongside the different groups, so don't worry if you don't have experience and/or want to try a new shift. Personally I'm biased towards the biking crew; join me if you want to have front row seats to the races while getting in a fun workout.


Note that there is a tab for the pasta feed on Friday as well. We need some help in light setup before the event as well as flowers & foliage donation. The boys and girls teams host this dinner for our entire team, family, and also all the mainland visiting teams. It's great fun and a casual way to kick off the meet weekend.


Kualoa T shirts available for purchase in-person for $20 each. Quantities limited, first come first serve in the iLab. We have men's and women's sizes available! Men's: XS - XL. Women's: XS - L.



Let me know if you have any questions & see everyone on the race course soon.


- Coach Jack
