    Cross Country

    Practice begins on Monday, August 5th at 6:00 PM at Penny Packer Park. Meet us by the ballfield.

    No running experience required! Just be ready to set goals for yourself and work hard to achieve them! Registration is open to all students in grades 3-8 who attend St. Peter School or St. Peter School C.C.D. or St. Stephen’s Parish C.C.D.

    Our cross country season is only about 6 weeks long with 4-5 league meets and 2-3 cross country invitationals. Practices will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-6:45 at Pennypacker and on Thursdays from 6-6:45 at Croft Farm. There is an early registration fee of $30 until August 20th. After August 20th the fee is $40.

    Since the team began some of our runners along with coaches and a few parents have competed in the annual Heroes to Hero run in Gloucester City. This run honors three hero firefighters who tragically lost their lives in the line of duty on July 4, 2002.

    * Reminder – Every athlete in 6th to 8th grade must have a complete physical to participate in Cross Country.
