Cross Country is usually an unknown sport as it is typically introduced in high school, but is available through club. XC/CC (abbreviated) is a competitive team sport offered in the fall for students in grades 9 through 12. Training starts in the early summer as soon as June. Teams consist of five or more runners who all race together at the same time with other teams. The top five finishers from each team are scored and their finishing places are added up for the team score. The lowest score wins. High school races are typically 3 miles and sometimes can be up to 3.1 miles (5K). The courses are mostly run across asphalt, grassy fields, dirt paths, and have a mixture of hills. A great thing about cross country is that everyone competes! Everyone runs the same course, and although the first 7 runners to finish are considered the scoring team, at every meet ALL athletes get to participate. There are no freshman cuts, and no bench to sit on and watch while others compete!
