All students in grades 3-5 practice the cross country trail on campus for several weeks. The course is equivalent to 1 mile. After weeks of practice, training and time trials students run a qualifying race in which one boy and one girl from each class run in the finals race. On race day, parents and community members pack the stands to cheer on the top boy and girl champions. At the conclusion of all runners crossing the finish line, the top girl and boy overall are awarded trophies.
