Welcome! We are very excited to have you as a member of the 2019 DCMS Cross Country Team! 

What is Cross Country?

In short, cross country is distance running, but without a track. At the middle school level, runners compete in 2 mile races, typically on dirt and grass trails. Once runners reach high school, the races increase to 5k. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to be good when you first start.

 

Why Should I Run Cross Country?

We believe that cross country is a sport for everyone. You don’t have to have any experience in running to participate in cross country. While some runners are naturally better than others, everyone can improve as a distance runner and find personal satisfaction. Cross Country is also a great way to condition for other sports. There’s no better way to prepare for basketball and soccer than by running cross country. In fact, we are fully supportive of you playing other sports. Most of all, cross country is fun and will allow you make lots of lasting friendships. And if you stick with it, you’ll be well prepared to join the DCHS Cross Country team one day and be part of one of the most successful high school distance running programs in Georgia.
