The Masco Youth Cross Country Program is sponsored by the Boxford Athletic Association.
Boys and girls in grades 6-8 are welcome to join the Masco Youth Cross Country Program. This is a competitive running program that competes against other local middle schools and in local races. Sessions will be on Tuesday and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 and Saturday mornings from 8:00 to 9:00. First practice starts on September 4th and will meet behind Proctor School.
A typical XC race is between 1.5 to 2.0 miles in length. Practice sessions are held at Bradley Palmer State Park, behind Proctor School on the rail trail and at Boy Scout Park. A weekly session will be emailed with locations of the weeks practices.
Masco does offer a non-competitive program through the Excels program in the middle school.
Cost of the program is $50.00 and includes a Masco running shirt.
