Youth will be introduced to the sport of cross country, they will train to run distances of up to 5K, depending on their age, and they will run in the races in Longmeadow and at outside meets. Emphasis will be on physical fitness and individual improvement.  All youth will run the Longmeadow Cross-Country One Mile race, which will take place on Saturday Mornings.  Middle school youth will compete in three to four meets against other middle schools, typically at the 3K distance.  Elementary school students will have the opportunity to compete at the meet in November, typically at the 2K and 3K distances.
