Cross Country gr. 7-12:

    • A NOTE TO NEW RUNNERS:  No one ever started running without a learning curve.  If you’re new to running, this is the perfect place to start.  No judgement, we are all out for the same thing…to challenge and improve ourselves. 


The Kailua Family Promise 5K!

By the time regular season starts, our goal is to have every Bulldog Runner complete a 5K.  

We are helping you with this by having runs twice a week with the goal to be able to run in the Family Promise 5K.  At this point, speed doesn’t matter, endurance does!  

 As a school group, we are given a special rate of $15 per person, so follow the link and sign up as soon as possible.  LJA XC Ohana welcome as well.  It’s for a great cause!!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions and be sure to put our weekly runs on your calendar!!
