Competitive Cross Country

Cross Country programs consist of long distance running; 3K at the middle school level.  Runners compete and train on a variety of terrains; trails, road, field and track and sometimes lots of mud!  Training consist of endurance running, speed drills, form drills, core strengthening, stretching, race strategy, nutrition, and mental awareness.

Training begins August 24.

2020 Season Will Look Slightly Different Than Year’s Passed

Our Fit180 Coaches are excited and ready to start the Pre-Cross Country Season.   Although Cross Country 2020 will no doubt look different than years past we are ready to adjust our season, training and racing in order to create the best and safest season possible for our athletes.   In order to accommodate numbers we will be offering your choice of 3 separate locations.    Once you choose a location you will remain at that location with the same teammates and coaches throughout the duration of the season.   Each location will be assigned two coaches.  We will continue to follow all state guidelines for outdoor group sizes.  (currently 25)

Mental, Emotional, Social and Physical Health – It’s more important now than ever to prioritize our health and fitness by staying in a disciplined and structured routine.   Never before has it been more important to stay in top physical, emotional and mental health.

Meets: We will do all we can to give our athletes racing opportunities.  At this time meets are a big unknown.  Meet Directors are waiting for guidance from the States to see how (if) they can proceed with meets.   My guess is meets will be small dual meets with staggered starts.   It could very well be we will be limited to race entries which means all athletes may not get to race at all meets.    If races are cancelled we’ll create intersquad meets and make sure our athletes clock some 3k times!

Our meet schedule is all very tentative and changing day by day.  We will get our team registered for as many meets as possible and provide updates when we have them.  Here’s what we have so far…
