Cross Country Running

MCS Cobra Cross Country 2021

Who:   All are welcome

No experience needed


Equipment Needed: a pair of running shoes and comfortable work out clothing

Practice times will be determined at the first practice

  • Athletes are asked to come to a minimum 3 practices every week, and need to do so in order to compete. See coaches if you need to make other arrangements.
  •  In order to attend Provincials, one meet must be competed in by the athlete.

    Note:  Remember to stretch before starting your run and then again after the run, this will help you stay flexible and help alleviate sore muscles.

Drink plenty of water THE DAY BEFORE and THE DAY of the RACE to hydrate yourself, to help you from cramping up.  Chocolate milk is a great way to replenish your electrolytes after you run.  Sport drinks tend to have a lot of sugar in them and are not recommended, unless you go with the new Gatorade Zero.  Eat plenty of veggies and fruit, along with a balanced diet including protein, carbs and grains.  A healthy diet will go far to fuel your runsJ Lol, without gas in your tank, you won't be able to perform at your best.

***Athletes are encouraged to pack their own lunches and snacks for Meets, but may purchase food there.

Cross Country is a demanding sport that involves a strenuous physical activity under a wide variety of conditions.  Although reasonable precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the athletes, the possibility of injury does exist.  We, therefore ask all athletes to complete and return the Athlete Information Form to one of the coaches before they are able to compete.
