Do you enjoy running?  Want to hang out with friends while being active outdoors?  Join Oakwood's kids' cross country program for boys and girls in grades 3-6.  The program encourages fitness and enjoyment of running while introducing kids to the basics of distance running in a fun and supportive environment.  This is a low-key program; running several times a week will help you improve, but you are welcome to join even if you can't attend every practice.  We will keep you updated through the season on races.  Please provide your shirt size when registering!!

A Liability Release Form must be completed and turned in for this program. You can find a link to the form at the bottom of this information. It can be printed, completed and then turned in to one of the coaches or emailed to Thomas Hayes at the email address below.
