Kelleys Island School Running Club
The KI School Running Club began its fall cross country season with practice on August 29, 2019. The club meets 3x a week to run, have fun, and prepare for 3 Cross Country Meets.
“Cross Country is a great sport that teaches many life lessons that our current culture does not promote or fails to emphasize. These traits not only will help athletes perform better, but they will make their lives better, long after they have crossed the finish line for the last time.” Life Lessons from Cross Country Run Ohio November, 2018 www.runohio.com
Each meet for the elementary age group is a different distance, between ½ mile to 1 mile long. Cross Country is ran on grassy surfaces like in a park or on a golf course. The first meet is September 21 at Walsh Park in Fremont Ohio. The second meet is on September 28 in Vermillion Ohio and the last meet is October 5 in Fostoria, Ohio.
Good luck to our young runners as they travel to their first Cross country meets!
