Richfield CC is stationed at Mile 9 of the Twin Cities Marathon, at approximately Minnehaha & Grand Ave. in Minneapolis. Register here; use the password "FLUID916" in the field at the top of the page to see details. (Note that every member of your family/group needs to be registered individually.)
DAVANNI'S FUNDRAISER is TUESDAY, OCT. 18 from 5:00-8:30 PM. More information to come.
SCHEDULE: See full schedule for details and additional dates for the season. Specific event details, including bus departure and arrival times, parking info, and course information (when available) will be posted to this site and to the Facebook group a few days before each event.
FUNDRAISERS: Cross Country has the best fundraisers -- all you need to do is go out to eat as a family and get your friends and neighbors to join you! Potbelly's and Davanni's give us proceeds raised during CC nights. These are fun evenings socializing with other cross country families.
PENN FEST: The Cross Country team volunteers for the annual Penn Fest race, which will be on Sunday, Sept. 18 this year. Plan on helping at noon with the water stop. The day includes all sorts of fun community activities along Penn Avenue between Highway 62 and about 68th Street. Come cheer on Coach Marty and Coach Jessica as they compete in the race.
APPAREL: Each year the team orders apparel (T-shirts, sweatshirts, sweat pants) with a cross country slogan and Richfield logo. If you have a suggestion for a slogan or art, please reply with your idea. Orders are optional. See the Apparel section for details/order forms.
COMMUNICATIONS: To keep runners and parents up to date on Cross Country happenings, coaches and parent volunteers may post updates to the Richfield Cross Country Facebook group, send out emails to the team and parents, and/or update information on our website. If you'd like to be included in email updates, please email Tammy Wallin, Parent Volunteer. Please contact Coach Marty Huberty at or 952-944-7262 if you have any questions or concerns.
CONGRATS to the runners, parents and siblings who competed in the optional URBAN WILDLAND RACE for Wood Lake Nature Center! Lots of Richfield alumni ran. Congratulations to Emma, Nicole, and Aria for finishing well in the 5K, and to Zamara for finishing well in the half marathon.
THE SPARTAN SPIRIT ALUMNI RUN was a success! Thanks to the runners, families, alumni, and friends who braved the rain to show their support and kick off the cross country season.
SIGN UP FOR PASTA DINNERS and MEET TREATS! Pasta dinners the night before race days have become a great tradition that has formed lifelong friendships and the support of a running community long after graduation. Help support our runners by hosting a pasta dinner and/or bringing bagels to races. Multiple families can divide the duties and the cost by joining together for a dinner. Contact captains' parents Bill & Anna Hoppe for more information or to sign up for meet treats and pasta dinners (the Spaghetti Dinners & Meet Treats schedule is now available for sign-ups).
Girls team: Nicole Mattson, Katy Stark, Emma Nollenberger
