Run smart.  Run happy.  Run IST!

IST Cross-Country

The IST Cross-Country team welcomes runners of all levels of experience and ability from Grades 2 and up.  The program is structured to challenge runners to get stronger, run faster, and to engage with running as a sport and a healthy pursuit.  Everyone works together to foster individual growth, teamwork, camaraderie, and a love for running.

Developing a love of running

Athletes, Competitors, Runners

Our focus on runner development and team-building has led to success in the Austin Private School Association league competition.  In 2019, IST runners placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd by season’s end.  Our runners were also honored to qualify for the 2019 national competition organized by the American Athletic Union.  Throughout the season, every IST runner has many opportunities to race as a Trailblazer!

It is our hope that every IST cross-country runner will develop a love of running that becomes a healthy and joyful part of their lives.
