Cross Country Running - Race Strategy

This is what the great cross country runners do during a race.

1. Cross Country Runners use their team mates during a race, and XC runners use other teams or other runners during a race. You can work together or you can draft off another runner.

2. CC Running Race Tip number two. Run the curves smart. If you have two turns in a row, run the tangent. That means, take the shortest route possible for every bend and series of curves. Stay on the inside of the curve.

3. Pick a place to make some surges. The easiest places, although CC running is never easy, is at the bottom of a hill, or around a blind turn. Push the pace to pass people or to separate from another runner.

4. Kick earlier. To run a great time, try pushing it and sprinting earlier than you normally would. You might surprise yourself.

Happy Trails,

Coach Tief

Runners' View of a Cross Country Race

This is a runners view of competing in a High School 3 mile cross country race at LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve. The actual 17:01 minute race is edited to play in about 5 minutes. It gives you a little bit of a feel for running a cross country race. Enjoy!


Number one is just to gain a passion for running. To love the morning, to love the trail, to love the pace on the track. And if some kid gets really good at it, that's cool too.

Cross Country Running Tips from

Here are seven great tips to help you have a great Cross Country season in either High School or Middle School. These tips are pretty basic, but I guess they could help even some collegiate athletes.

Anyways, the first tip is to train in the preseason. Make sure you are running in the summer months so you come into the cross country season in good shape. It will make for a much more enjoyable and successful season.

Next up, you need to eat healthy and get your sleep. You can be in great shape, but if you don't eat right, its like putting sand into the gas tank of a high performance machine. Stay away from highly processed foods and go for the good stuff like whole grains, vegetables and fruits. Sleep is also very important because that is when your body recovers from all the running that you are doing. You have to rest and recover so your ready for the school day and for the training and racing.

Don't forget to set great goals. Pick a goal time that you want to accomplish for each race, and set goals for your training every week. If you don't have a goal, maybe you should talk to your coach and see what he/she thinks you could achieve.

Cross Country running involves a lot of running on the hills. Go smooth and steady up hills but make sure to pick up the pace at the top of them. Go fast but in control on the downhills.

Running with your teammates in the preseason is a great way to ensure success. Also, pack it up and help each other train and race.

Pacing is vital to cross country running. Make sure you figure out what pace you should be running at. Don't go out too fast in a race, and really try to push the pace later in the race.

Being mentally tough is my next cross country running tip. You have to stay positive and tell yourself that you can do it. Running is tough, so you have to be equally mentally tough to stick with it and finish strong in workouts and races.

The last tip is to have fun. Cross country is very rewarding if you work hard and work together with teammates to get better each week. You'll feel great and get fit running cross country.

Cross Country Season Begins! XC Training: Day 1 🏃🏾💨

Cross Country Season 2017 is among us and I begin my XC Training to motivate you guys as well as to challenge myself. My focus for this first day's workout is to run a steady pace, basically a tempo run, to log about 4-6 miles worth of distance. My overall goal is to gradually increase my millage so that It will be more easier for me to maintain my goal race paces that we will talk about in future videos.

Cross Country Running Tips - Breathing While Running

Follow me on Twitter -

I highly recommend breathing when you are running. I'm being sarcastic, sorry. What I mean is, get the oxygen into your body as quickly and efficiently as possible. I've heard some crazy things like, only breathe through your nose, or just through your mouth. WRONG. Breathe with both.

Also, you don't have to breath in one stride, and then out on the next. You can take deeper breaths if you are running at a slower or moderate pace.

Why Isn't Cross Country Running In The Olympics?

Why not, right? Cross Country should be in the Olympics, and here's four reasons why.

1. It already was in the Olympics. It was held three times in the early 1900’s. They stopped it because in 1924 it was a real hot day and several participants didn’t finish the race. We have the marathon now, and that is super brutal compared to a 10k or 12k race.

2. Here in the United States, almost half a million high school students participate in cross country. According to a survey done in 2013-2014 470,000 kids ran CC.

3. Its a global sport. Actually East Africa dominates the international scene. The best two teams at the IAAF championships typically are Kenya and Ethiopia. It already has a world championship event every two years.

4. You could have it in the winter or the summer. Typically, championship season for CC in high school and college is in October and November. This is much closer to winter than summer. Also the Olympic Summer games could have the CC race almost a week before the track events start. The best distance runners could run the CC race, and then a week later be back on the track.

Let some people know it should be. Send your messages two @sebcoe who might become the IOC president, @Olympics, naturally, and @iocmedia. Use these hashtags. #XCOlympics and #BringingXCBack
