Cross Country

 

We are very excited to offer a youth cross-country program in Rosemount!

The main goal of the RAAA Cross Country program is to provide an enjoyable experience for kids interested in running. The aim is to provide guidance and opportunity to develop basic skills in distance running.

The kids will have the opportunity to participate in middle school and high school meets and will be competing in the mile distance with kids of similar age and abilities from the neighboring cities of Apple Valley and Eagan.
