Summer Training begins June 28, 2021
The cost for summer training is to $250
Cross Country is a unique and amazing sport. It requires a blend of speed, strength, and mental toughness. Runners compete over 3-mile or 5K courses that offer varied terrain, hills, and sometimes the unexpected (it’s an all-weather sport). Training in the summer, prior to the season, is essential to the success of any runner. Unlike many other sports, Cross Country requires the athletes to have aerobic endurance, strength, and speed. No one is just born with the ability to compete at the high school level in Cross Country. The fitness required to compete well in September-November is earned in June, July, and August.
With this knowledge in mind, we at the Colts Running Club offer summer training for novice, returning, and elite runners who want to compete well in the upcoming season. Runners attending practice are divided based on age and ability and will receive appropriate training based on their goals and experience. Any high-school aged runner is welcome to attend.
