    Century Cross Country

    "Cross Country: No half-times, no time-outs, no substitutions. It must be the only true sport"


    Why run Cross Country?

    Cross country is a good place to learn something about oneself. We try to prepare our athletes to be healthy, happy, and wise. Colleges look favorably on students who have participated in cross country because it demonstrates self-discipline and dedication. We stress consistent training, improvement, and proper pacing. All are able to achieve success. We work hard, have lots of fun, share many rewarding experiences, and are sad when the season ends. Cross country is a fall sport open to all high school students, even freshmen. It's coed and it's a lot of fun!
