Cross Country - Girls' Varsity

Signup for an alert reminder.

There will be a team meeting sometime in late May.  Anyone who is interested in running in 2019 should attend.  Check back here for details, or the team blog, or listen for an announcement from Mr. Miran.


The Girls Cross Country Program was resurrected in the fall of 2014.  The season runs three months from mid August to the State meet in mid November.  It is even longer if you include the summer running program which begins in early July.  To perform for this long of a period and to succeed, a runner must not only love running, but must be dedicated and committed to the sport.


Runners participate in approximately a dozen meets during the season which include the County Championship, the Prep School Championship, and the State Championship.  Their home course is at Spring Lake Park in South Plainfield.  The start and finish is at the parking lot which can be accessed using the entrance on Maple Avenue across from the South Plainfield Recreation and Pool.  DO NOT use the address on Plainfield Avenue if you are using GPS.


Cross Country is the hardest sport at Wardlaw + Hartridge.  If it was easy then everyone would be joining!


Any questions about Cross Country can be sent to the Head Coach, Rick Riepl at


Team Blog/Website - for the purpose of reporting race results, announcing schedule changes, detailing the summer running program, and providing team info and running news in general.
