The High School Cross Country Training Series is designed to take runners to the next level. Training here is two-fold: physical and mental. Over the course of four weeks, expert coaches will guide runners through challenging workouts that will improve endurance, speed, and form. On the academic side, informative clinics focus on topics such as positive psychology and proper nutrition.
The application consists of a short online form and 250-word essay (completed online). While not required, we encourage you to have your coach, a teammate, teacher, or counselor send a brief statement (500 words or less) as to why you are a good candidate. Please make sure the person writing the recommendation includes your full name in the letter.
