CROSS-COUNTRY (6th 7th & 8th)




The best thing you can do for next season is start training this summer! Whether you get out on a jog a couple days a week or enter in a few city races, everything you do now will help you in the fall. Get in touch with your cross-country coaches if you are interested in a summer training plan– we have a lot of fun ways you can get a head start!  Here are some fun 5K races you can still join this summer:
