Wildcats, It is with great sadness that we postpone our kick-off event. As all of you are aware Covid 19 is pausing a multitude of events in our country. We are actively watching this developing health concern and listening to those who are in charge of our greater population. The Winnebago County Health Department made a statement on March, 12 that groups or twenty-five or more should not meet. It is with great sadness that we believe it's in the best interest of all our Wildcat families to postpone the start of the 2020 season until we are encouraged to begin congregating in greater numbers. While we cannot meet as group, I would encourage all of you to start getting out for runs or walks as a family! We hope to resume our schedule as soon as we are advised it's appropriate. We will send emails with any updates as they are made as well as updating the Wildcat website and Facebook pages with information. We look forward to running with the children soon!
We would love for you to join the Wildcats. Simply go to our "club membership site" follow instructions and create a free account, then come to a practice to try it out. There is no commitment beyond the first run, but we hope to run with you again.
The Wildcats is a Youth Cross Country Team that started running in 1997. The program is designed to let kids have fun while learning about running. The ages of our runners range from 5-18. The program is open to all who might be interested in running. The Wildcats are a part of the Rockford Road Runners, a Road Runners Club of America organization member club.
