Our first meet (open to Gr. 1-7 – the only meet offered to our Grade 1s) is the Star of the Sea Cross-Country meet on Monday, September 24th. It will be held at Crescent Park in South Surrey. This is a great participation meet and it is close to our school. This is a fun meet and the boys and girls will run with their age groups.
Our second meet is the CISVA Cross-Country meet (Gr. 2-7) on Wednesday, October 3rd . It is at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby. This meet has a competitive and non-competitive portion. All students will participate in 1 run. The 4 CCS athletes with the fastest times from each age group will compete in the competitive run (with the option of the Fun Run, if they have enough energy to do so). All other runners will take part in the fun run. Cross Country Coaches will decide the 4 runners that will participate in the competitive race.
