PATC AGE GROUP CROSS COUNTRY

General Practice Information

The PATC age group Cross Country experience is tailored for athletes born in the year 2008 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.
