Elementary Cross Country
Coach: Mr. Scott Martens
Cross Country Running is available for students from grades 4-8. It’s a great way for students to improve their fitness, challenge themselves and have fun outside. Athletes will be running with students their own age from across the city. All are welcome regardless of skill or experience. If students want to join, they can just show up at the first event at Sunningdale. Parents are responsible for transportation. All they need is running shoes and comfortable clothes.
