Cross Country

PAC Cross Country is a great individual/team sport.  You, individually, set the level at which you compete by determining how hard you train, how you finish each race, and by deciding if you can do more next time.  At the same time, you are an important part of the team.  Each runner’s finish contributes to the team’s score.

We are a team that is determined to honor the Lord Jesus through our running by training hard, serving each other, and showing Christ-like sportsmanship at all events we participate in.  We run against home school, private and public high school teams across the state of South Carolina, and we usually travel to Georgia, at least once during the season.

If you are in the sixth grade and at least 12 years old (this requirement is subject to change based on the new requirements by the SCHSAA), and are homeschooled, or attend a private school that does not offer cross country, then you are most likely eligible to participate with PAC cross country.

We require a birth certificate and sports physical, performed by a licensed medical physician, before an athlete is allowed to participate.  We will practice at Saluda Shoals Park, in the Irmo area, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, with additional optional runs on Saturdays.  We may have the opportunity to add additional optional runs during the week, as well.  We begin practicing in mid-July with the first meet scheduled for late August.  It will be hot, and we need time to get conditioned to the heat and exertion that cross country demands.

 

First Practice Date:  Monday, July 24, 2017, 7AM
Saluda Shoals Park, 5605 Bush River Rd, Columbia, SC 29212

glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.”Phillipians 2:16
