We are still working on the details for practices. Until we are allowed to use the track facilities at Morris Hills and Morris Knolls practices will be held at alternate locations. Registration will be done online through TeamSnap. A link will be posted here.
We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Our hope is to have a great track season in the spring and we have already begun planning. While sign-ups for the season would normally begin in January, we are delaying this until February when we hope to have a better idea about the meet schedule, use of practice fields, and size limits. For those that participated in our fall Cross Country Season and may have left things behind or did not get your end of season gift, please contact us.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com or via our Facebook page.
Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy New Year. Keep on running!

The RT Racers Board
The Lakeland league is still working on a format that supports a safe model of running XC meets. The meets that we used to run in on Sundays had about 600-800 kids in it. Since outdoor gatherings have been reduced to 250, we have to come up with a way to run meets that are in compliance, which might mean dual/tri or quad meets (meaning that we would compete against only 1, 2 or 3 other towns.)
We are working on putting together the registration on TeamSnap with all the necessary extra Covid-19 paperwork. RT Racers is committed to running a program!
In the meantime you can help us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if your child is interested in participating this fall. This way we get an idea of how big our team will be.
Thank you for your patience!

Hello RT Racers Families!
Here is a quick update on the upcoming XC season:
We are planning on running our program within the guidelines of the NJ Department of Health and the CDC. The guidelines are subject to frequent change and might cause us to change direction, but at this point, we are hopeful to have a cross country season in the fall.
Practices will change from Mon/Wed/Fri to Tuesday & Thursday. Location TBA.
The Lakeland League is currently working on a format for running the weekly meets at Greystone/Central Park of Morris.
Teamsnap registration will open the first week of August. A registration link will be posted here. We will also email the link to all past participants.
In the meantime, please contact us with questions at email@example.com
The RT Racers Board
- All registration fees will be refunded in full. This will be done by the end of the week but may take 5-7 business days to become effective.
- All merchandise orders that were placed have come in and should have already been distributed. Please let us know if you have not received your order.
In the interim, Coach Steve has posted workouts for RT Racers on the online training app. Details about that were emailed to you.
There are also some workouts if you are stuck inside or in your backyard – they are posted under the “workouts” tab. There is one specifically for the clinic. Have the family join in as well!
In the event that the track season must be canceled, we will issue refunds to all registrants. Until that time, please allow us to navigate the current situation rather than e-mailing us to request a refund.
Spirit wear: Has arrived and everyone who ordered has been contacted.
