The High School Cross Country Training Series is a pre-season program designed to take runners to the next level. Training here is two-fold: physical and mental. Over the course of four weeks, expert NYRR coaches guide runners through workouts that improve endurance, speed, and form with the goal of building a strong foundation for the upcoming cross country season. On the academic side, informative workshops focus on topics such as sports psychology, proper nutrition and race strategy.
Twenty high school runners joined NYRR for the 2016 season of High School Cross Country Training Series. After 16 practice sessions and 11 workshops, these athletes were ready to take on their cross country season. Highlights from the 2016 season included: a hill running technique workshop on the famous Van Cortlandt hills; a talk and Q&A with pro runner, Stephanie Schappert; and a dynamic drills clinic that introduced the high school runners to the same drills elite distance runners incorporate into their training.
