Cross Country (Middle and High School)

Sage Middleton School Cross Country

Are you interested in running? Want to improve your speed and endurance? Want to play games and laugh with other awesome middle schoolers? Want to be part of an amazing team this fall? Look no further, we are so excited to announce our first season of cross country! Please read the information below to see if you would like to join our team!

This is open to all 6-10th grade students. The 6-8th graders will train and compete as middle school athletes, while the 9th and 10th-grade students will do so as high school athletes. There is a different distance for the high school, so training will look a little different between the two groups.


TBD for 2024/2025 school year

Season Schedule

Practices will begin on Monday, August 19th. They will run Monday-Thursday from 4:15-5:15 pm, with a workout to be done independently on Friday-Sunday. Students will have 15 minutes after school to get dressed and ready for practice. We will meet in the gym at 4:15! Pick-up from practice will be outside Sage Middleton in the pickup line.

Meet Schedule will be posted as soon as it’s available

*For some of the meets, runners will leave Sage Middleton early, missing some class time. Runners will need to maintain academic proficiency throughout the season in order to be eligible to participate in meets.

Required Equipment

  • Well-fitting running shoes
  • Athletic/running shorts
