New practice times and places


I realize that many of you have been on your own, some out of town, and some staying safe at home, and that is okay. For the next couple of weeks while we wait for an answer from the district as to when the official start time will be, the boys will be meeting at 8:00 am, Monday – Friday at these places:

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: Buchholz High School 
Tuesday: Santa Fe college
Thursday: UF Track

We will be taking all the precautions to stay safe. It will be great to see you there if you can make it.

New information from the Alachua School Board

Runners and parents,

As of tonight, we have a couple of new requirements from SBAC. 

1. Any new runners must have an EL3 (consent) form on file. If you have not given one to coach Maren, please fill out and give to him. Returning runners do not need a new one.

2. Also new is each runner must have a physical  (EL2). Please get this when you can, but don’t stop coming. If it takes a week or two it is okay.

2. Returning runners are good with their physicals for one year. I have attached the names and dates for those who had physicals and when they expire.

I’m sorry for the confusion, things seem to change day to day anymore.

Buchholz track awards

Runners and parents,

Because it is unlikely that we will be able to meet as a group this summer, the coaches have decided to go ahead and announce the winners and give out the Buchholz Track awards now. Attached is the list of athletes that the coaches are proud to announce. We chose four categories for each of the three areas of events: Most Valuable, Most improved, Captains award and Coaches awards for Distance, Sprints, and Field. (24 total). We also wanted to recognize the 14 seniors that unfortunately did not get to finish off their careers at Buchholz. As far as letter awards, we will deal with those later in the summer or when school resumes.

We will be at the Buchholz parking lot on Wednesday, May 20th, from 5:00pm to 6:00 to hand out the awards. Please come by the bus drop off and we will hand you the award.

The coaches are proud of every athlete irrespective of awards and again congratulate both boys and girls for being Alachua County Champions!

BDRC 2020 Announcement


It’s unfortunate but not a surprise that the Brevard distance camp has been canceled, I’m sorry. The coaches will look into other ways we might be able to get together as a team later on in the summer. Also, our summer running program that we have every summer at UF WILL TAKE PLACE. When this happens depends on restrictions placed on us by the county. WE WILL BE IN TOUCH. Meanwhile, we hope everyone is running on their own.
