FALL CROSS COUNTRY
ORYA is excited to offer its first ever cross country program! Led by head coaches John Demers and Cathy O’Brien, with support from many of you who can act as assistant coaches, our little runners will be introduced to the sport and basic techniques and approach to age-appropriate distances. While drop off and pick up will be at Tibbetts field, our coaches are lucky to have the large open space at Tibbetts field as well direct access to a network of trail systems in the Moharimet woods and Powder Major Forest at their finger tips.
Both John & Cathy bring experience as world class runners. John is in 2 athletic hall of fames (Dover & UNH) and Cathy competed on the national, Olympic stage representing the United States in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic games.
As an added bonus, all registered participants and volunteers are automatically entered into ORYA & Durham Parks & Rec. Trot in the Trees 5K and 1 mile fun run on Oct. 15 at no additional cost.
This program’s success will be dependent on receiving enough parent volunteer assistants to make it successful. Please let us know if you can help run along with our group and support your head coaches!
