Wood River Middle School students—get ready to run!
The first practice of the school's cross country team is Monday, Aug. 23 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. at the Hailey school track.
Bring a water bottle, running shoes and a positive attitude, coach Steve Poklemba said. The program is open to boy and girls in grades 7-8.
Poklemba said, "Whether you want to get fit for future sports, test your endurance or be part of an optimistic team, come and join the fun.
"Our philosophy is to get you to constantly grow and improve your own fitness and mental toughness. We have daily workouts that include games, track work, hill climbs and backcountry runs."
