Livermore High Cross Country- 2021 Summer Activities.
Livermore Running Club (LRC): The LRC summer running will begin July 5 th , when we will meet at
Kellman Fields (Independence Park), 5:00 PM. The opportunity to run with the club is open to anyone.
Running with the club is voluntary and does not obligate you into any sport at LHS. The summer running
will consist of mostly early-morning runs. Occasionally, we will run in the evenings. Usually, we will meet at
Kellman soccer fields, located off Holmes/Vallecitos Road. It is important and beneficial for you to run on dirt
and grass as much as possible. Running hilly terrain is also very helpful. I mention these things because there
will undoubtedly be days when you can’t or don’t run with the group. So, these are some of the guidelines to
consider when you run on your own.
You should begin running before July 5th (see guideline below), especially those of you more experienced
runners. I have included a guideline giving you a suggested running schedule, including type of runs,
duration, and so forth.
Physicals: You must be cleared for participation by the LHS athletic department prior to the first
official day of practice. The ‘fall sports sign-up’ is largely done on-line. Go to the school athletic page for
instructions as to how to do this. So, prior to the sign-up night you must have undergone a physical
examination by a licensed doctor and had the doctor complete the physical form (issued by the school).
Cross Training: Here are two conversion factors for those of you trying to do cross training: Biking- divides
biking distance by 3 (Example: 45 bike miles equals 15 running miles); swimming- multiplies swimming
distance by 2.5-3.5. Any aerobic activity, including lifting weights, is helpful for developing your fitness and
athleticism. I encourage you to do these cross-training activities to supplement your running. But cross
training cannot replace the running.
The official first day of cross country practice is August 9th .
