Fall Cross Country

2018 Purdue Area Track Club Age Group Cross Country

The PATC age group Cross Country experience is tailored for athletes born in the year 2006 or younger. We are committed to introducing young athletes to the rewards and benefits of a running lifestyle that can be beneficial for all sports as well as lifelong fitness. We are not specifically geared up for “competition”, but will provide information for parents to register and attend those meets if they desire.

  • Attendance is optional
  • Parents may purchase "Spirit wear" offered on line from Wednesday, September 12 to Monday, September 24
  • Spirit wear delivery will be no later than Wednesday, October 10
  • Parents are required to sign off on liability and show proof of their own insurance coverage in case of injury

The season ends on Wednesday, October 24, and any further competition is the parent’s responsibility, but we will help with registration information. We may go an extra week of practice (until Wednesday, October 31st) if the weather is favorable and there is enough interest.

All practices are optional and there is no penalty for missing practice.

Remember that athletes can certainly choose to just come and run only, without competing in any meets at all!
