Fall and Spring Running Seasons

We offer a non-competitive youth program to introduce running to young athletes in a safe and fun environment. The focus is on self-improvement, being an encouraging teammate, and making new friends. The Cross Country Series is a six-week school program and is open to students in kindergarten through 5th grade. The cost of the program is $59 per runner plus a $14 t-shirt (if your runner doesn’t already have one).

Practices are scheduled on Wednesdays and Thursdays and are held from 3:20 to 4:05. Practices consist of running games and track workouts with a strong focus on fun.

Races are held on Sundays at 3pm at Doherty High School (check on the "Fall Schedules" or "Spring Schedules" tabs under Elementary Athletics for actual meet dates).
Runners will participate in one race and the order of events is as follows:

* Race #1 – Kindergarten – 1st 1/2 mile, 2nd – 5th 1 mile, and 2nd – 5th 1.5 miles.

* Race #2 – Kindergarten-1st 1/2 mile, 2nd – 5th 1 mile, and 2nd – 5th 1.5 miles.

* Race #3 - 2nd – 5th 1.5 miles, Kindergarten-1st 1/2 mile, and 2nd – 5th 1 mile.

At the races, runners receive a race tag with their number, ribbons, a series medal at the final race, and refreshments. Race results are posted on the Landshark website within 24 hours of completion.

Runners must be registered prior to the second week of practice. Please register online at www.landsharkrunclub.com.

We look forward to working with your athletes! Please consider volunteering to help coach or work at our race site. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please let the PPCS front office know and the coach will contact you.
