I can do all things through Christ who Strengthens Me

Cross country (XC) is a running event in which teams and individuals run a race on open-air courses over various terrain. The course lengths are typically 2-5 kilometers long, depending on age of athlete. The course may include surfaces of grass, dirt, asphalt, and pass through woodlands, while also including hilly terrain.It is both an individual and a team sport; runners are judged on individual times and teams by a points-scoring method. Both men and women of all ages compete in cross country. Cross country season runs from August through December.
The I.E. Stallions XC program is a growing program, however from it's first year in 2017 we have had representation at the National Championships each year. We encourage those interested to come out and bring a friend of same age and gender, as each XC team must include 5 runners (scorers) at each age group and gender.
