MEADOWCREEK HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY

“A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.”
-Steve Prefontaine

What is cross country?
Cross country is a 5k (3.125 mile) race that is run on open, rough terrain including wooded, grassy, muddy, and anything in between.

How do you win as a team?
The first 5 people on the team to cross the finish line without being disqualified score for your team. You add the top 5 places up, and the lowest score wins. Races include a 6th and 7th runner in case someone has a bad race or is not able to finish the race.
