  • Program Description:

    Train like the Pros! The beauty of cross country is that it's you against not only the competition and yourself, but also Mother Nature. We will help you understand pacing, conditioning, strategy and most importantly maximize running efficiency through proper form running. 
    Over a variety of surfaces -- from dirt and grass to mud and asphalt to gravel and everything in between -- you'll find sharp turns, short steep hills, long cantered sections, logs to jump, creeks to cross, bridges to negotiate, all combining to constantly disrupt your rhythm much more so than a race run on an even, flat surface.While learning what your optimum effort should be, and teach your body to maintain it, with training tailored to the demands of cross country racing
    This is the ultimate training week
