Cross Country

              2019 Fall Cross Country Schedule

This schedule is tentative based on permits and confirmation from away meet directors. The n/a under the Accotink location means that there is no practice there but that runners who usually practice at Accotink should come to the Fairfax location.

The season starts at the end of August. We understand that families are establishing back-to-school routines. If your child is unable to attend, that is ok. We can get them up to speed when they come to practice. The first practice with the parent meeting is very helpful for new families. This is the only time we meet at Fairfax HS for XC. Families should sit in the stadium seating (press box side) for the meeting.

"Meet the Coaches Night" is not required. Families can come and meet some of the coaches and ask questions. 

We DO NOT take attendance at practices and do NOT need to be notified if your child will miss a practice.

 CROSS COUNTRY EVENTS

FPYC Running follows USATF guidelines for XC distances for double groups. 6 & Under (6U) is not an official USATF age group but at local youth races there is at times an option for a 1K race to allow the 5-6 y/o runners to have a shorter distance and separate age category from the 8 & Under (7-8 y/o). 

To compete at the USATF and/or AAU XC National meets, runners must turn 7 years old in that calendar year. Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championships (CCCNYC) does allow runners who turn 6 in the calendar year to compete with the 7-8 y/o, running the 2K at their youth championship meet.
