Cross Country - August-October (IESA)

Meets are afterschool and on Saturdays (Official meet schedule TBD)

Cross Country is distance running on off-road surfaces, mostly grass. Our competitions are 2-mile races at local parks and schools. The boys and girls teams race separately but train together. The cross country meets that we attend will have anywhere from 2 other schools to 45. It’s a great experience! Everyone competes, there is no “bench”. It’s a great way to get in shape and discover inner strength. No prior experience required, but we’ll do our best to get our runners to the point of being able to cover 2 miles without stopping before putting them in a race.
