Cross Country - Boys' Varsity

Signup for an alert reminder.

The 2020 season begins on Monday August 17, 2020.  There will also be a pre-season meeting at the school sometime in early June.  Check back for more info or check the team blog.

 

The Boys 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.  The home course is the 5K course on campus that is used for the Fall Fair Alumni Run.

    

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 rriepl@whschool.org
