Cross Country

Welcome to the Kelleys Island Middle School Cross Country page!

We are proud to have had a running club at Kelleys Island school since 2017. We have an Elementary Running Club Team member who is now a middle school student athlete and will be running in OHSAA middle school sanctioned meets! You can find our complete schedule on this page.We belong to the Ohio High School Athletic Association. We are hoping to be included in the Sandusky Bay Conference River Division. We will travel off the island to 9 different competitions.
We practice Monday through Friday and run on one weekend day. We utilize many different places on the island to run! Our school gym provides us with equipment and space to do drills, exercises and have a safe place to run in inclement weather.
Middle school races are 2 miles or 3200 meters. New for this year is the Middle and Elementary School State Cross Country championship meet, the end of October.
Running is great for children! It improves mental and physical well being; it's fun; it improves sleep; it raises your IQ; it's free; running is an individual and a team sport; it teaches perseverance, boosts self esteem and confidence and teaches a life long exercise habit.
