Cross Country

Cross Country is Tuesdays and Thursdays (which are optional) from 2pm -3pm.

Pick-up time is 3PM

Ms. Wedge and Ms. Hagy will be heading the team as sponsors with some volunteer help from other experienced coaches.

Our next meet is:

When: Wednesday, Oct. 20 4:30pm Boys race at 5pm and the Girls race at 5:30pm
What: 3k Middle School Race Boys will run at 5pm and Girls at 5:30
How: We will have a race clock at the finish line and we can film the top finishers and reward the top 10 finishers of each race with ribbons (hopefully no ties!!!)
Parking: Park on the grass and mention to parents to that parking will be tight, so they will need to follow the parking attendants.

All XC Runners are Welcome to participate!
Be there by 4:20.

** Parents are responsible for getting students to and from the meet.** 

The online registration for the Matanzas 5K is up and “running”! The race is planned for January 22, 2022

ACRR uses 100% of the proceeds from the Matanzas 5K to support St. Johns County high schools, middle schools and the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. ACRR has donated more than $300,000 to youth running programs! 

This event is open to SMS runners, their families and the school community – everyone can register for this event! The bigger the race registration, the more money we can distribute!

Please go to ACRR and the Matanzas site for more information! http://www.matanzas5k.com/

This is a wonderful opportunity for runners to not only earn outside funding for their school but also earn community service hours from ACRR, 501(c)(3) organization if they volunteer. 

Enjoy this great running weather!
