What is Cross Country besides the greatest sport ever?
Cross Country is a test of the human spirit. We run and we run some more, but we run with purpose. There are no timeouts, no substitutions, just you and the clock. We run 5000m(3.1 miles) in a race through parks, golf courses, and fields. We challenge what we thought was possible in the pursuit to become our best. In the process we find out a lot about ourselves and our teammates. We realize the pursuit of cross country is not to better than other runners, but to "strive together" to become our best, which is the Latin translation of compete.
