RUNNING SHOES – An adequate pair of RUNNING shoes MUST be used. Without proper shoes, runners will not be permitted to practice.
RUNNING PANTS OR SHORTS – Athletes should have active wear for practice and meets. Athletes can wear any athletic bottoms for the meets.
WATER – All athletes are REQUIRED to bring a water bottle to all practices and meets (no water, no running).
WATCH – Basic watches with a stopwatch function are helpful for practice. A watch will help athletes time their work-outs and help an athlete track their own progress.
UNIFORM – Athletes will receive a jersey. They will be responsible for bringing it to all their meets. They can keep it at the end of the season.
RAIN GEAR AND WARM CLOTHES – Alaskan athletes understand that we run in various weather conditions. Be prepared to run outside every day. Please pack extra layers to include a long sleeve shirt, sweats, rain pants and a rain coat. If a student is unprepared for practice, they will be sent home. Athletes are required to show they have a jacket and pants prior to getting on the bus for a meet as well. Many of our meets are met with heavy rainfall. If an athlete does not have their gear, they will not be allowed on the bus to travel.
