Season Update 5-6-2020

We hope that all of our RTRacers athletes, families, coaches, volunteers, and friends have been staying healthy throughout these unprecedented times.
Our goal had been to have a track season this spring, even if it was delayed or looked different. Unfortunately, with the news this week that schools would remain closed through the end of the academic year, we have no choice but to cancel the track season. Please be aware of the following:
  • 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.
As many of you know, the RTRacers track team is like a family. Many of our runners start in the clinic program and continue as a varsity athlete all the way through middle school. Not only do our runners achieve personal bests in races and events, but they also make valuable and long-lasting friendships. Many of our parents start as volunteers and find themselves becoming coaches, even after their child has graduated from the program. We also have many graduates that return each year to volunteer and mentor other runners. Not being able to have a season is a tremendous disappointment, but we know that it is a decision that helps to ensure the health and safety of all of us. We would like to thank everyone that had planned on volunteering and coaching to make this another successful year.
While we may not be able to get together on the field, we are still working on ways to honor our graduating runners that were not able to take one last lap together on the track. More news on this to follow.
As the weather gets nicer, continue to exercise and wear your RTRacers gear. We look forward to seeing our long-distance runners in the fall for the Cross Country season, and everyone back on the track in 2021!
