    Spring 2022 Track Season, February - June, 2022. 

    Track Practices will be held at El Roble track, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, Monday - Thursdays.  Note:  hours and locations will be adjusted during the season in response to changing daylight hours, heat. and track/facility availability.  There are two steps to signing up for Spring 2022 Track Season Practices.

    STEP 1.  Join the team as an Annual Youth Team Member.   If your Runner ran Cross Country in Fall 2021 and paid Annual Membership during Fall 2021, there is no additional membership charge to Register for Track 2022,   For first-time CRT Youth Members signing up for Track 2022,  and for former CRT Members who did not renew their Runner's Annual Memberships during Fall 2021, Annual Youth Team Membership costs $48.  New Members can join the team at New Members.  Existing or prior CRT members can check their membership status by going to their Runner's Profile.

    Annual Membership lasts through August 31 of the current year.   Annual Membership covers fixed costs, such as individual USTA membership and team t-shirts.  It is separate and charged separately from any practices or events a runner may separately registration for.  Annual membership cannot be prorated.   

    Step 2, Registering Spring 2022 Track Season.  Spring 2022 Track Season practices cost $64.  Track practices are now underway and will continue into June.  Sign up at any time.  USATF Races and other Events are separate registrations and are charged separately.  These are charged at CRT's cost.  USATF Races hosted by 3rd parties generally have minimal costs, often under $10.

    General Information. 

    Practices may be cancelled due to inclement weather (rain or excessive heat), field conditions, holidays, or circumstances beyond Claremont Running Team's control.  There are no make-ups or refunds for cancelled days.  On days with questionable weather, please check the CRT homepage for any possible cancellations or changes.  The decision to practice on questionable weather days is at parental discretion, and Parents/Guardians must remain at the facility in the event a late cancellation is necessary.

    In all cases, Parents/Guardians for Youth Runners 4th grade and under, must remain at the practice site during the practice/event.  Due to insurance considerations, younger/unregistered siblings are not allowed to participate in practices or stretching with registered runners.
