Tomorrow’s Elementary School Cross Country Challenge

Thank you to all our parents who registered their child(ren) to run on behalf of Saint James School at the Cross Country Challenge tomorrow.

Please read the following details concerning tomorrow’s event:

Registration tables will be located outside the main gate to Memorial Field at Manchester High School.  Please arrive at the registration table 20-25 minutes prior to the race start time.  Children will pick up their race t-shirt shirt (if registration was sent in by by 10/4), name tag, and race tag.  Races will start promptly at the designated time, so please come early to allow for extra parking time and registration (it will be extremely busy at the High School on Saturday due to other events occurring at the same time).

For students registered after 10/4, please have them wear their SJS gym shirt.

All spectators (parents/guardians/siblings) MUST REMAIN OUTSIDE THE TRACK AND FIELD while kids are running.  Parents and siblings may not run with the racers.  There will be older students from cross country teams at the high school/middle school level who will be there to assist children on where to run.  Also, NO DOGS are allowed at the event.

The event will take place rain or shine.

If you have any questions, please e-mail our parent volunteer coordinator, Amy Guenther, at

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow morning for this fun, annual Manchester-wide event!
