Description

The Jingle Trail races continue the healthy holiday themed legacy of running in Tucson and Vail. Mica Mountain High School and the Mica Mountain Cross Country Program aim to engage the community in promoting healthy lifestyles and community engagement. We are proud to help partner with the local community, Vail School District Transportation Department and collect toys for Toys for Tots. This year we'll attempt to pack up a Vail School District bus with over 500 new toys for our local community. Every registered runner/walker is requested to bring a new & unwrapped toy for donation.Our Cross Country team and school would like to thank you for considering coming to this event, being a part of the Mica Mountain collaborative culture, and helping to brighten the holidays for those around us.

The Mica Mountain Cross Country team will be out on course throughout your Jingle Trail experience to help direct you, cheer you on from the start to the finish line, and help you enjoy your morning. The course will primarily be on the Mica Mountain Cross Country course with a few potential modifications. The race will be chalked/coned, have railroad ties denoting borders of pathways as well as having Mica Cross Country athletes pointing you in the right direction. The race will start and finish on the school track (which is new and awesome!) and include "Thunder Hill"  to the southwest and the "Rolling Thunder" hills behind the visitor bleachers. A link on this website will take you to a MapMyRun simulation of the race.

A 2021 "Day of Service" with many stakeholders helped improve the terrain including 10 truck-beds filled with pecan shells from the Green Valley Pecan Company. This natural material is a challenge to run on but will naturally become a part of our course over time. Course terrain varies things up from the fast start and finish on the school track, asphalt sections, dirt, grass, and hills with something to challenge even the most seasoned of runners! This fun event is a great taste of high school Cross Country! We hope you decide to come spend the morning with us. Spread the word to family and friends...and don't forget the toy for Toys for Tots!

 

 

Welcome to Mica Mountain Cross Country! Founded in 2020, we are now in our 3rd year as a program. We train from June to late November and compete in local and out of state Cross Country races (typically 5k distance). Our team is over 40 athletes of all grade levels. In our first year, we sent one athlete to state. In 2021 we sent a boys team and one girl to state. In 2022 our goal is to send both the boys and girls teams to state. We are embarking on our first out of state invitational in late October and are eager to continually improve. We aim to build healthy lifestyles and help mentally balance the challenge of school and academics with running and team building. Check out our new team website to learn more about who we are.
