Rec. Cross Country Program:

Our Rec. Cross Country season primary focus is to introduce and teach the sport of Cross Country to our club members. We employ a “couch-to-5K” type approach, beginning with short running intervals and walking recoveries, and gradually increasing our continuous running. We place a strong emphasis on learning good running technique and mechanics. We achieve this by incorporating drills and strength exercises into ever practice. We believe that all of our member athletes have the capability of safely running long distances.  Our goal is to encourage all members to work up to a continuous run equal to their age specific race distance and to finish the season by participating in one Cross Country race. (Registration includes the Healthy Kids Running Series @ Charlestown Park & Uniform Top)
