Cross Country

The Collegiate

Cross Country season begins the first week of school with a meet in early September and the season runs to November with several meets at La Barriere, Crescent Drive, Assiniboine, and Harbourview Parks. Boys and girls run in separate races that at typically 3000-5000m in length on challenging trails and terrain.  Traditionally the Provincial meet has been at Spruce Woods Provincial Park in late October.  Cross country running requires good training and regular outdoor running to be prepared for races; the team practices outdoor running and good warmup-stretching routines but to train well a typical athlete should be running 20-30 km per week outdoors.  Please see Mr. Patterson for more information
