"I always loved running...it was something you could do by yourself and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs."
Calling all runners!! Whether you are a veteran runner looking to increase your endurance and speed or a beginner trying out a new sport, St. Joseph’s Cross Country team is the place for you! Cross Country is a fall sport for any 5th-8th grade student who would like to increase his/her fitness level. There are no tryouts or basic requirements. All students are welcomed and encouraged to join!
Cross Country athletes run three days a week after school with practices including speed drills, hill work, stretching/strength and long runs of two - three miles. The season starts in August and ends in October.
"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start."
