Parents and athletes, we used to keep you all updated.  

 Using your smart phone, text to the number, 81010, the message:  "@kinghighxc"  (with no quotation marks) You'll be signed up!

Each season we are faced with the prospect that a program like ours is NOT fully funded by the school or the RUSD.  While some funding is provided, we are left FAR SHORT of what it actually costs to have a canopy banner, banquet yearbook, coaches, awards, invitational fees paid, travel expenses, drinks and water at practice, awards, and more.  NONE of these things are fully funded by the school or district.

So, we need all athletes to participate in our fundraising, and we humbly ask that each of you raise a minimum of $125 toward the financial necessities of the season.  

You can do this through a variety of ways.

Here they are:

Business Sponsorship    Friends/Family Donation   

Straight Family Donation of $125.  Make check payable to "King Cross Country Booster Club"

Scrip balances - While this is not a "quick" way of accruing $125, over time, the proceeds that you earn from purchasing scrip from our scrip coordinator, can be donated to the program to help cover all or part of the $125 request

King Cross Country has had a history of making special memories at locations beyond our immediate area! Throughout our 17 seasons, we've made some over night trips to a host of cool locations.  Here's a listing of the locations we've traveled to compete:

San Francisco (3 times!)
Stanford University
Birmingham Alabama
San Diego
Portland, OR (individual)

Travel and cross country are paired and every few years we try to find a great meet in a great location.  The last time we did an extended trip (three days, two nights) was in 2013 when we traveled to San Francisco and raced in the beautiful Golden Gate Park.

This season, September 9-11 to be specific, we're headed to a great and competitive meet in the Monterrey Bay Area.  The 22nd annual Early Bird Invitational will be held on the same course the Central Coast CIF Section hosts their CIF Championship. Over 50 schools will be in attendance.

Our plans are still fluid, but we do know we will travel on Friday and Sunday, with Saturday being a day of competing and having fun.  An hour north of Monterey is the famous Santa Cruz Boardwalk, and we'll finish out Saturday by hanging out on the Boardwalk.

A final price of the trip will be announced in August, but right now, we have it coming in for under $180 per person (two nights in hotel, food, bus transportation) 

Unfortunately, trips of this size and magnitude (in terms of planning), mean we can't take everyone on the team; we are limited in slots available for travel. Our team isn't large enough to justify or afford a second charter bus and we have to make hotel arrangements three months in advance.  You can imagine how problematic this is, when we don't even know what the next season's team will even look like.

So, as we've done in past years, we've created a point system that reflects our team values, that athletes will use to earn a spot on the charter bus. While we don't like the idea of leaving anyone home, there is just no pragmatic nor financially feasible way to put a trip of this size together in advance without having our numbers set.  There will be 53 seats available. The motel rooms were reserved in early June.  Parents will be welcome to join us, but will need to provide your own accomodations.

Here are the categories and points earned in each: 

1) Student is fully cleared on Day One of Summer camp. INCLUDES: RUSD Packet completed, including all signatures, DR's physical, and camp fee paid  40 points
2) Attendance at summer camp 10 points each day, 15 on Saturdays (July 35-Aug 23. No points during Mammoth week)
3) Achieve Team Qualifying Mark on First Time trial (TT) opportunity   50 points
4) Achieve Qualifying Mark on Second TT 40 points
5) Achieve Qualifying Mark on third TT 30 points
6) Attend Summer Camp team (non running) event 20 points/1 time only
7) Varsity Letter earned in 2015 75 points
8) Daily recording of workout(s) on 5 points daily (DIRECTIONS:  go to and make a free account.  Then, click on the "Join a team" and search for "Kingxc".  Ask to be admitted into the team and you'll start earning points. Start inputting your daily workouts - miles run, shoes used, how you felt, etc.  The team page will be checked NIGHTLY, so you'll need to get in the habit of doing this daily, after each run.
9) Earn Mammoth camp Invitation 50 points
10) Tardy to start of summer camp practice -5 points. Tardy is defined as "after roll is taken"

 Earned points will be ranked and the ranking will be used to make the list.  We have to balance rooms (4 of the same gender in each room) so the coaches will make the final list based on that reality.  (i.e. we can't have a room with one guy in it and a room with 3 girls in it ... all rooms will need to be filled).  The coaches also reserve the right to invite an athlete on the trip for unforeseen and abnormal circumstances.

As we did in 2015, we have access to Eastbay for team gear and other running-related apparel.  These come to us at discounted prices.  To access the available selections, click on  

At the top right of the page, you'll need to type in our "team code" to access the page.  Here is the team code: OFTSMLKC

A few notes on this sale:

1)  This is completely optional.  No purchase is required.  It is made available for your convenience and for saving some money on team gear as well as running apparel many athletes use.

2) King XC does not make any money off the transactions

3) Printed gear with the King logo will not be produced until after August 21 and will take 2-3 weeks following the close of the team page.  

4) We must have a minimum of 12 orders of printed gear for the gear to be made and shipped.  If we don't meet that minimum, you will be notified and your money refunded. 

5) All gear that you order will ship directly to your house or the address you provide

5)  TEAM SWEATS will be provided on loan for the season just prior to our first competition.  If you purchase the Eastbay/Nike sweats available on this webpage, you CAN use those sweats in place of the team-issued sweats.

Here is a PDF copy of the page.  (Large file, slower download)
