2023 summer schedule

Registration for 2023 is open and we are excited to start pre–season practices soon! If you are new to the team you are welcome to join us for a few practices and talk to our coaches and parents to see if our team is a good fit for you. For the beginning of the season, our practice plans are as follows, starting the week of June 5:

Occasionally we may try a Durham parkrun, switch to Seymour Athletic Fields in Apex, or do some track work at Apex Friendship Middle School. We use TeamSnap exclusively to communicate changes to practice location and schedule, so please reach out to us if you are not on TeamSnap currently.

Our primary coaches are Karen Adams, Scott Moonen, and Josiah Ruhl. Please let us know if you’re interested and available to assist with coaching in case someone else can’t make it. We’re glad that Eli Ruhl is continuing as assistant coach, Ana María Fraticelli as team manager and assistant coach, and our alumnus Keaton Adams is joining as assistant coach.

As in the past we depend on you to register with USATF for team insurance. Their fee is about $33 this year. You can go ahead and register with them any time; our team is “CARY FIRE (NC – 13-1087).” Fees for team registration this year are:

  • High school runner $75 before July 1, $150 after
  • Non–high school runner $60 before July 1, $120 after
  • For non–competitive runners we request a $30 donation before July 1, $60 after

We welcome kids who are younger than middle school to practice but we need help from parents during practice to ensure they are safe. They won’t be able to run in every race but we will do our best to include them when we can.

Grace and peace to you!
