St. Ignatius’s co-ed Cross-Country team runs long and hard each fall. This sport is available to students in fifth through eighth grade.
Come run! The 2017 Cross Country season is about to start. Cross Country is a great way to inspire a life long love of running. Everyone participates. We compete as a team and athletes compete against themselves. It’s a great second sport that is extremely flexible with commitments for school and other teams. Kids run in three practice meets and a Championship meet. Parents: these practice meets are very short.
Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. at Oak Meadow Park. It is okay if you can’t be at every practice.
1. Practices will be :
Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30pm – 4:30pm
Oak Meadow Park
2734 American River Dr, Sacramento, CA 95864
This park is located in Sierra Oaks roughly 2.5 miles from the school. There is free parking on American River Drive and a playground and covered picnic table area for parents with younger kids. There is also a water fountain here.
The access to the American River is very close.
Why are we meeting here?
There is a great “entry” trail that will work for all levels of runners. We can do hills here. And there is great visibility to keep eyeballs on kids. And , there is free parking.
We’ll move to William Pond Recreation area later in the season.
