Cross country is very similar to road racing but usually on a soft surface, such as grass or trails. Each age group will have a specific distance and will race by age group and gender. We desire for this to be a fun experience so we will try and be creative in making it fresh and exciting, but we will also want to challenge them to push themselves to do things they may have never done before. All practices and meets are optional. Practices will be at Holmes Lake every Monday and Wednesday night from 6:00 - 7:00pm. We will also have a Saturday morning run available. As it gets darker we will move practice to 5pm. Parents are welcome to come and run with the team.
