The Newark Memorial Cross Country Alumni Association (also known as CXC4L) has a few major goals:
- To assist the current team in a variety of ways, whether it involves running advice from experienced athletes, providing a low pressure first race for new runners through our annual alumni meet, or even college and career advice from alumni that have already gone through the entire process.
- To provide its members with an easier atmosphere and motivation to stay healthy.
- To ensure that those who left everything at Coyote Hills in the name of Newark remain networked, even if their cross country days are in the past.
We are all alumni of the Newark Memorial Cross Country team. Most of us were in the best shape of our lives during the time we spent there. Some of us got into even better running shape after high school (the crazy ones.) Some of us participated in intercollegiate athletics. Some of us are moth types. Some of us lean towards the non-linear. We all enjoy each other's company.
