Fall 2023 registration is open!
All Middle School students are invited to join the St. Mark’s cross country team! Cross country and running in general is a very challenging yet rewarding sport. Not only does this lifelong sport have numerous health benefits, but it also teaches kids to overcome obstacles and to set and accomplish goals.
Practices will be held every Thursday, starting August 31 from 3-4 p.m. When school lets out, runners are to quickly change and meet at the bleachers on the Big Field for the start of practice.
