As many of you may know, the Mattern Run (Alumni Run) will be held this coming Saturday at Olinda Ranch Park. The race time is scheduled for 8am, and will be run on the same course as the last couple years (perimeter loop around the houses, roughly 2.2mi). The event itself is a great opportunity for friends to have a small reunion and for newer runners to meet the individuals that donned the Wildcat mantle before them. As always, the post-run breakfast will include a race award ceremony as well as Hall of Fame inductions for both the Boys' and Girls' teams.
For our current athletes, it is recommended to arrive before 7:25am so that proper warm-up can be completed before the race. This is a great introduction to pre-race routines that will be important throughout the season, and an opportunity to race with teammates they have been training with all summer.
See you all on Saturday!
