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 five-week school program and is open to students in kindergarten through 5th grade. The cost of the program is $60 per runner.
Practices are scheduled on Mondays and Fridays and are held from 3:15 to 4:10. Practices consist of running games and track workouts with a strong focus on fun.
The season will culminate with an in-house meet held here at PPCS on October 17 where each student will compete in their age/grade level (tentative date and time).
Meet distances:  K-1 is .5 mile, K-2 has option of 1 mile and 1.5 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 this link.
COVIID concerns:  we will maintain social distancing and follow our cohort protocol by keeping students within their PPCS grade level cohorts during practice.  They do not need masks as we will be outside.
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.
