Welcome to Westtown Cross Country!
Cross country is a unique sport. It is a team sport where we have individual goals as well as collective goals. This provides the opportunity for measuring success at many levels, whether it be winning a race, completing a course with a personal best time, or running with teammates to push and support one another toward a better team performance.
The cross country program at Westtown has a long tradition of character and success. Our team has fostered an atmosphere where we are respectful of everyone's talents and abilities, where we are supportive of each other, and where we have a great deal of fun while training hard and competing intensely. We believe every team member is important and all the runners can inspire one another with their achievements.
Early season training is focused on gaining a solid base of endurance through distance runs both on campus and in local neighborhoods. Hill work and speed work are added to gain strength and speed. Westtown has one of the most beautiful and most challenging cross country courses of any school in the area. The woods and farm fields of our 600 acre campus provide a wonderful setting to enjoy training and competing.
Just as a musician performs a composition or a painter shows his or her work in a gallery, Westtown runners compete as a joyous expression of who they are and to display the fruit of their hard work. We welcome athletes at any ability and experience who bring a positive attitude and a willingness to challenge themselves and to enjoy and support their teammates.
