Cross country running is a sport in which teams and individuals run a race on courses that consist of trails, dirt roads, grass, water crossings, bike paths and other varying terrain.  It is both an individual and a team sport. Runners are scored on individual times. Team scores are calculated according to individual overall places. Race distances vary from one meet to the next and can range in distance from 1.5 mile to 3.2 miles races. Meets are held throughout the Denver Metro area, in parks or general open space. Tryouts are not necessary. Any boy or girl wanting to run who is in 6th, 7th and 8th grade is welcome to join the team, after filling out and completing an athletic packetAthletic packets need to be completed and returned to Mr. Vecqueray, prior to being able to practice. All athletic packets are due no later than August 23, 2018.
