Cross country running is a sport in which runners race on open-air courses over natural terrain. The course, typically 3 miles long, may include surfaces of grass and earth, pass through woodlands and open country, and include hills and flat ground. It is both an individual and a team sport, as runners are judged on an individual basis and a points scoring method for teams. Both men and women of all ages compete in cross country, which usually takes place during autumn and winter, and can include weather conditions of rain, sleet, snow or hail, and a wide range of temperatures.

“Success isn’t how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.” – Steve Prefontaine
“In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.” -Fred Lebow, New York City Marathon Co-Founder
