Cross Country

The Marin County Middle School/Junior High School Cross Country Championship was founded in October, 1971 by the Marin Country Schools Coach and Administrator, Don Meroff.  Each year between 600 and 800 students from every middle and junior high school in Marin County run in the championship meet held at the McInnis Park.
The course is one-and-a-quarter miles in distance.  All participants who finish the race receive a ribbon. The top runners receive a medal, and the first place winner is awarded a trophy.
To compete in the final meet, a runner must participate in at least one meet before the championship race.  All competitors will run by grade level and gender.
Please contact the Physical Education Teacher at your school to find out how to participate in your Cross Country team.
