  • Thursdays – 6:30 – 7:30 pm, Georgia Botanical Gardens, meet at the parking lot near the Day Chapel

These are flexible practice runs to allow new runners to get stronger and acclimate to the heat while older runners can keep fit and start working toward their season goals early.   If your child is just curious about cross country or is considering it just to stay in shape for their other sports, please encourage them to come run with us. If your child is new to Westminster this is a great way to get introduced to our school community. Nearly 1/3 of the middle and high school students run cross country together!
