Cross Country

A group of 2018 Maywood Hills cross country runners.

What is Cross Country?

Cross Country at Maywood Hills is our fall team sport.  Practices start as soon as possible after the beginning of the new school year each September.   The season includes four Tuesday meets with other schools in the Northshore School District.     

This program is open to 3rd, 4th & 5th graders of all abilities.  Participants are introduced to the sport of long distance running.  Our elementary runners compete on cross country courses of roughly one half-mile.  Team members learn that distance running takes more than just raw speed, and work on the art of pacing as they build up their physical endurance.

Join the Maywood Hills Tigers!

The Maywood Hills team/activity shirts are available for purchase from our PTA.  The Cross Country team, the Track team, and the Math Olympiad team, will be using these shirts this school year.  If you are on more than one team, you will only need one shirt, and it is yours to keep.  Here is a PDF order form.  Order forms will also be available in the school office.
