West High Boy’s Cross Country

The Madison West Boys Cross Country Team is pleased to staff Aid Station #1 at this year’s Madison Mini-Marathon. The team is made up of 85 – 100 boys in 9th – 12th grade. The boys work toward common goals of team and individual improvement in the areas of fitness, health, leadership and community service. We strive to be an inclusive team that welcomes anyone interested running cross country; a sport where hard work is rewarded with positive race results and where life-long friendships are forged.

November Project-Madison 

November Project™ offers free social, outdoor workouts every week all around the world in order to increase human connection, improve mental and physical health among both adults and youth, teach the public about fitness and health, improve communities throughout the world, and bring people of all different background, ages, cultures, communities, and fitness levels together. This movement is about more than just free workouts. It is about satisfying the ever-increasing need for human connection in the face of rampant technology, declining health, and global instability. It is about promoting healthy lifestyle choices. But none of it matters if we’re not having fun. In Madison, we meet every Wednesday at the top of Bascom Hill and every Friday at the State Capitol Steps by the Lady Forward Statue at 6:28 am. How can you join? Simple…just show up!

Memorial High School Boy’s Cross Country.

The Madison Memorial Boy’s Cross Country team serves 80+ athletes each fall season. The team consists of 9th-12th graders with varying levels of running experience. Throughout the season they work towards the common goal of running a 5k race at the best of their ability. Along the way many friends are made and life lessons are learned. They hope to bring this enthusiasm to running to the mini-marathon course. If they received a monetary gift it would go towards equipment that could be used to help strengthen athletes and prevent injuries.
