X-C start date of Tues. 9/29 @ 5:30 pm to dusk on the AHS track. Thereafter the days at the AHS track and trails would be every Tues. and Thurs. 5:30 to dusk until the end date of Thurs. 11/19. Saturday's training and runs will be held at 9:30 am to 11:00 am @ Glenn Memorial Park from 9/26 to 11/21.

The proposed plan for the X-Country program would be as follows:
