Our program is designed to create a love of long distance running in youth. We hope to provide a program that is fun, competitive and social. Cross county races are trail races on different types of terrain. It is a fall sport, practices usually beginning the second week of Cobb County schools and ends after USATF Jr Olympics in December. We participate in a series of developmental meets and end our season with the USATF Championship series.
