Cross country season is back and is in full swing for NB3 Foundation’s NB3FIT program. This year boasts attendance numbers we have yet to see since the pandemic. With four practice sites in Albuquerque, Pueblo of Sandia, Pueblo of Santo Domingo and Rio Rancho over 67 youth ages 5-17 will be running this fall. Expanding back into surrounding communities is to thank for increased registration numbers. NB3FIT coaches are divided up at the separate locations where they lead practices twice a week. At the end of the week all runners come together for a communal practice to help promote team identity and encourage relationships between youth at the varies sites.

The team is set to run in it’s first race on Saturday, Sept. 17 at the John B. Roberts Dam. Stay connected with us on social media for updates on the team throughout the season.
