Mapleton Cross Country is partnering with Northwestern Cross Country to form a new running club for kids called “302 Running Club”. This is named after the main road that connects our two districts. We want to help spread a message that we already know…Running is FUN!!! This year, for the first time, we will offer 2nd through 6th graders the opportunity to learn and experience the sport of cross country by joining our Middle School and High School teams for an introductory distance running team experience. We will be meeting together with young runners from the Northwestern School district at Mapleton’s school as well as Northwestern’s during the summer. During all practices and race sessions, our coaches will be present and running with the kids to help them reach their goal while keeping them safe wherever they are at.
