Cross Country is open to students in fourth, fifth and sixth grades. Practices begin in early August and students are introduced to distance running by Coach Shannon Mizell, a faculty member who ran at Lipscomb University and Brentwood Academy after beginning her running career as a student at St. Paul.
St. Paul's runners compete in meets against other local schools with the MTAC Cross Country League. The 4th grade race is 1 mile. The 5th and 6th grade course distance is 1.55 miles. The season concludes in late September.
