About This Activity

The Gallaher Youth Cross Country Series is a three week program for all girls and boys grades 3-5 that teaches the fundamentals of distance running with weekly competitions in October. In many counties surrounding Cleveland (including Bradley) cross country is not a funded school sport at the elementary school level. Ocoee Track and Trail serves to help fund, foster and expand a sport that provides positive health benefits to its participants. Everyone is welcome, whether your school has a program or not, you are homeschooled or you just love to run. It doesn't matter how fast or slow you run because all pre-registered participants receive a t-shirt for their achievements courtesy of Ocoee Track and Trail! If a participant completes all THREE runs in the series a medal will be awarded. The t-shirts will be available for pick-up on the last scheduled run October 27th. If a participant is unable to attend that run, then the shirts will be delivered to the schools or made available for pick-up.

The series will be held on consecutive Tuesdays, October 13th, 20th, and 27th at 5pm. The distance of the race will be 1 mile and held on the Greenway, grassy areas surrounding the Greenway, and possibly on a track.

*Attention -- You are registering for the SERIES. It takes place on Tuesdays, October 13th, 20th, & 27th. If you can only come to one race, that is perfectly fine. But, we would love for you to complete ALL three runs. You only register this one-time for all three dates. Please try to be at the run location and ready to run 15 minutes prior to start time. We will try to start promptly at 5pm with the 3rd graders running first.
