Our race will raise funds for our inaugural Running Ranger program, a four-week Summer camp that will teach children in our community the virtues of running, including: goal-setting, teamwork, leadership, persistence, and dedication.  Additional financial support will be used to cover the cost of entry of our athletes to clinics, local races, and necessary team gear.  Thank you in advance for your support of the Northwest Area Cross Country runners.


Join us on Saturday, July 25th in Kirby Park for the Christmas in July 5K & Reindeer Relay.  Proceeds from this race will benefit the Northwest Area Cross Country Team.   Event will be professionally chip timed with splits provided for the 4 loop relay.

The Northwest Area Cross Country program has been dedicated to promoting health, wellness, and a love of running for the students of Northwest Area School District for decades, producing many state-qualifying athletes but more importantly inspiring countless life long runners.
