The annual race between alumni of the Bainbridge Island cross country team and Bainbridge High’s current crop of runners was recently held at Battle Point Park, with the returning vets of the men’s and women’s seeing mixed results at the finish line.

Bainbridge runners also got another blast from the past this summer.

The cross country summer conditioning group had a visit from Vern Wade, coach of Bainbridge High School Cross Country from 1970-1982, at the Fort Ward run on Monday, July 30. Wade stopped by to say hi and talk about some team traditions.

Summer training for the Spartan cross country runners continues through August, with the official kick-off of the fall sports season Aug. 20.

Summer conditioning is free group training program, not affiliated with the Bainbridge Island School District, and is open to all new or returning BHS athletes preparing for fall cross country, or other sports in which conditioning is crucial.

The schedule for the group is:

Mondays, 9:30 a.m. at Fort Ward boat ramp;

Tuesdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Lynwood Center, Walt’s Market;

Wednesdays, 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Battle Point Park (west entrance ball fields);

Thursdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the BHS track; and

Fridays, 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Phelps/Hidden Cove ballfields.
