High School Cross Country Training Series

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 and college mentors 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.

Eligibility requirements:

  • You will be attending a New York City high school in 2013
  • You will be on the cross country team at your high school in 2013
  • You can run 3.1 miles (5K) without stopping
  • You are able to attend all practices
