GHS Cross Country Summer Program
Unless circumstances dictate otherwise, all cross country athletes are to participate in the summer program. This is due to the fact that it takes time for your body to become accustomed to running, plus cross country is a fall sport. Waiting to start at the begining of school will cause an athlete to miss some early season races.
Before you begin the program, you need to get the online athletic paperwork completed and your physical done. The link for this is on the Cross Country homepage.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You need to make as many of these workouts as you can and on a consistant basis. You cannot make up workouts the next day. You need to convince your body that this is an everyday activity or your body will not make the changes you need to get better and you increase your chance of injury. So, unless it is a family activity or your are on vacation out of the city, make every effort to make these workouts.
