Get your running shoes ready... Fall 2023 Cross Country Registration is open!!!
Program availability is subject to guidance of the parish, the Diocese of Allentown.

St. Joseph the Worker - Cross Country is open to grades K - 8th

Practice starts first week of August and continues to late October.  Practices are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:15 to 6:30pm.  (Wednesday practices are optional for K-2nd grade)

Meets are Sunday afternoon's from 2:00 to 4:00pm (September through mid-October).  All meets are held at local Lehigh Valley parishes.
K-2 race is 0.5 mile
3-4 race is 1 mile
5-6 race is 1.5 miles
7-8 race is 2 miles

Races average between 30-80 kids per race. The younger grades are the bigger races.
Parental involvement is encouraged at practice and helping at our home meet.

Practices are fun and demanding. The focus is on fitness and improvement for the individual within a team environment. The sport builds self confidence and running has been shown to improve academic performance. Cross country will improve endurance for spring and winter sports.  (Note other concurrent CYO fall sports will typically conflict with the Cross Country practice & meet schedule).

**NEW for 2023 SEASON** - Runners must attend at least 1 practice per week to be eligible to run in Sunday's meet. 

Once we have registrations completed, we will create a TeamSnap and use that for official communications.
We always need volunteers, high-school helpers, and additional coaches.
