COME JOIN THE ST. MARK CROSS COUNTRY TEAM
Cross Country is a great sport for all ages, and is similar to long distance track races but is run on trails and over hills. CYO Cross Country is set up to be a low-key, fun introduction to the sport of running. Open to students in grades K-8, practices are not mandatory to allow students to participate in a second sport in the fall, though participation at the preliminary meets is required to participate in the championship meet. The level of effort and participation can be decided by you and your child.
Begin Monday, September 9 with weekly one-hour practices.
Day/Times: Mondays from 3:30-4:30pm
Everyone meets on the St. Mark grass field to stretch, then:
- Grades K-3 continue practice at St. Mark
- Grades 4-8 run to Shoreline Stadium
There are a total of three Sunday afternoon meets at Woodland Park in September and October, where each participant runs one race per meet.
Grades K-3 run .5 mile
Grades 4-5 run 1 mile
Grades 6-7 run 1.5 miles
Grade 8 runs 2 miles

With such a wide variety of running levels, we could use a few more parents to run with the group to the Shoreline track on Monday afternoons.
