Largo Cross Country Alumni Reunion with Coach Brent Haley. Anyone who was part of the Largo XC program knows it was one of the most successful programs in cross country history, including multiple state championship wins and even a 1983 ranking as the best team in the country. Coach Haley created what many in sport and journalism circles would consider a dynasty. Always humble and praising his athletes for doing the real work, Coach Haley is recognized as the singular force that motivated and brought together athletes over a lengthy coaching career to perform at levels unseen by their peers. Anyone who ran for Largo knew that this program was truly something special. And that is what inspired this reunion. Unlike other reunions that happen every decade, this will most likely be a once in a lifetime event and an unprecedented opportunity to share amazing memories, stories, and connection with Coach Haley, his wife Linda, and former teammates from all years running at LHS. July 27 will be in many ways magical. A coach. His runners. A shared legacy. The idea that multiple generations of Largo XC Alumni, spanning decades of time, would finally meet, transforming printed names in record books into real life characters, is truly awesome. Please join us Saturday, July 27, at 6 pm at the Largo Cultural Center with your spouse or significant other in celebrating this event. Tickets include a reception, full buffet dinner, and cash bar and absolutely zero proceeds are for profit. All proceeds go directly to the actual cost of the venue and food. No event company is being hired. All coordination is done for free by volunteer alumni who want to make this event special and memorable. There will be guest speakers and plenty of opportunity for interaction. There will be a Sat early am alumni race (exact time to be announced) option at Taylor Park with a Bullhorn start by Coach Brent Haley himself. This will be more of a photo opp than a competitive race (although Facebook is blowing up with challenges) so bring the whole family. See you there.
