2015 Cross Country Season


**Cross Country Registration is Now Open**


The 2015 Gliders Cross Country season started on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 with an information session and first practice at Sanlando Park (pavilion#1).  Practices will be Mon, Tue & Thu at Sanlando Park from 6:00-7:30 in September, 5:30-7:00 in October and 4:45-6:00pm in November due to the lack of lighting, shortening days and the end of daylight savings time. This poses a major challenge for many, but we get through it with substitute at home workouts.  Athletes are also expected to run at home Wednesdays and Saturdays. There will be occasional Saturday morning practices and meets too.

New for 2015, we will also be offering sprint, jumps and throws training for non-Cross Country runners (general strength and conditioning, agility, flexibility, technical) during the XC season on the same schedule and the same fee (don’t worry, there will be no long runs for you!).

The AAU Cross Country National Championships will be December 5th 2015 in Danville, AL and the USATF Cross Country National Championships will be December 12, 2015 in Albuquerque, NM

Teams are made up of 5-8 runners in each 2 year age division, so make sure you recruit your fast friends.

To join the Gliders, simply fill out the online registration form in advance, familiarize yourself with our website and show up at the next scheduled practice ready to run.  See you there!   Your first week of training is free, before your non-refundable membership/registration fee is due.  The practice schedule and Meet schedule are posted. 



2015 Track Season Summary

Practice started in February and in March the Gliders began to compete in local meets through May. At the end of May, the Gliders hosted its 23rd Annual Spring Track Classic, which was attended by over 700 athletes from all over Florida and several records were broken. Also in May, high school Gliders competed in the regional and state championships and later the Golden South meet.

In the beginning of June, a college Glider earned a 2nd place silver at the NCAA Division I National Championships in Eugene, Oregon. Also in June, the Gliders competed at the AAU national in Tallahassee and the USATF national qualifier in south Florida where the club qualified 15 athletes for the national championships in Jacksonville and Norfolk. In the second week of July at the AAU Club Nationals at Disney, the Gliders won several medals and the club qualified additional athletes for the AAU nationals.

At the end of the July, the Gliders 13 athletes competed in the USATF National Track & Field Championships in Jacksonville where the club earned 4 national medals including a national championship title. At the AAU Nationals in Norfolk the Gliders won 3 medals. In August, the Gliders concluded the season with the annual picnic at Wekiva Springs Park, where the athletes and coaches were honored.
