    What is Cross Country?

    • Cross country is a co-ed running sport where athletes compete in a 2-mile race. Our 2023 season starts July 31st and goes to mid-October. We typically race on grassy courses at public parks and schools. All skill levels are welcome! You just have to love to run, like being outdoors, and willing to give your best effort!!
    • Some things you can look forward to this season:
      • Making new friends and becoming part of an amazing team of athletes
      • Improving your physical health
      • Seeing your hard work pay off as you set new goals and reach them
