All practices will be scheduled so that participants can participate in both Cross Country AND play another sport in the same season.  Away meets will be held at surrounding agency departments.  This is also the All-Stars season; runners will participate in the GRPA State Cross Country Meet held on October 7 at Jefferson Recreation Department.

All runners are provided a jersey and shorts by MCRD. Runners must provide their own socks and running shoes.
