East Granby Parks and Recreation and TheTotalRunner will be offering a 10-week Intramural Cross Country program for student’s grade 6-8th. 

The program begins September 12th and runs through November 18th. There will be no program on September 16, October 6, October 10, November 1 and November 11.  This intramural sports program aims to introduce the sport of cross country running to students who may be either new to running or who are looking to participate in High School Track & Field/ Cross Country during their High School years.

This program teaches the fundamentals of distance running and will also offer competitive events starting in early October. During this 10 - week program, we will focus on developing cognitive, physical, and social skills as it relates to establishing a solid running foundation. This goal-oriented program will provide instruction on key running concepts with practical demonstrations of and participation in running activities and events.

We will work due develop proper running form and stretching techniques. Participants will also develop character skills, such as good sportsmanship, perseverance, keeping a positive attitude, setting, and achieving goals, and understanding the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Participation in competitive meets is not required but encouraged and meet schedule will be available mid-September. 

The full program will be held Monday through Friday from 2:30-4:30pm at East Granby Farms, beginning the week of September 12th and will run through November 18th. We will offer a 3, 4, and 5 day per week option to ensure all students who want to participate can do so based on their fall schedules.
