Manchester Elementary School Cross Country Challenge – Oct. 19th

This year, Saint James School will again participate in the Frank Rizza Elementary School Cross Country Challenge.  The event is being held on Saturday, October 19th at Manchester High School and is for boys & girls in Kindergarten through grade 5.

More details can be found in the attached Cross Country Challenge Registration Form. If your child is interested in running, please fill out the bottom part of the form and return it to the school office as soon as possible.

We are also in need of several parent volunteers from Saint James School to help out with our registration table, scoring table, racer supervision, and awarding of prizes.  If you are able to help us out in one of these capacities the day of the event (8:00am – 12:30pm), please contact Amy Guenther – who is coordinating this event for our school as a parent volunteer.  She can be reached at

All runners will receive a participation ribbon.  Individual medals will be awarded to the top 15 finishers in each race.  Trophies will also be awarded to the top placing schools in each race.  It’s a great morning and a lot of fun for the kids.  We hope you will join us!!


Please submit a registration form by Friday, October 4th in order for your child(ren) to receive a participant t-shirt.
