WHAT IS CROSS COUNTRY?

Cross Country is a team running sport that takes place in the fall on a measured 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) loop over varied surfaces and terrain.  Most cross-country meets are held on dirt trails, side walks, park grounds, and golf courses.  Some meets are more spectator friendly and you are able to see the runners at different spots during the race.  Other meets are difficult and you may only see them at the beginning and when they cross the finish line.  Try to obtain a course map and mark out possible spots for viewing.  If you need assistance with this please, contact the coaches and they can assist you with this.
