Cross Country is a running event in which runners compete to complete a course over open or rough terrain. The courses used at these events may include grass, mud, woodlands, hills, flat ground and water. The runners at Faith Academy push themselves to strive for excellence at every opportunity. The endurance it takes to compete at this level comes only after countless hours of conditioning to be prepared.
