Middle School Cross Country

  • Welcome to WESD Middle School Cross Country! Please click here to view Parent Resources and Forms for Middle School Cross Country.    


    Cross Country is a great sport for those who want to challenge themselves, meet new people, and even prepare for another sport.  Athletes get to build relationships and support one another as they set goals and challenges throughout the season.  Some of our WESD runners go on to run in cross country in high school at a top level, while others use it to just better themselves socially and physically.  While there are champions, there are no losers in this sport.  Everyone walks, or rather runs away better for the experience!
