Cross Country

Join the Eleanor Roosevelt Cross Country Team to learn about running, racing, character development and teamwork.

What is Cross Country?

Cross Country is an individual and team sport where athletes run a fixed distance,

typically on grass or trails. The races are run by age group and gender and don't exceed 1.86miles.

  • We offer two practices a week. It is encouraged to

  • attend BOTH practices
