Michael Reed, PAC 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 at the Riverbirch Shelter
Saluda Shoals Park, 5605 Bush River Rd, Columbia, SC 2921
