Crusader Cross-Country is headed to the USCAA Nationals. In a stunning development, Christendom will send six runners to Virginia Beach this weekend to compete against some of the best runners in the nation, making the program, only in its first full year, a great success.
Saturday morning, the Crusader Cross Country team competed in their third race of the season. Just forty-five minutes from campus, athletes raced at Kernstown Battlefield, hosted by Shenandoah University. The course was challenging, with rolling hills and trails running through the forest. All around, both the men's and women's teams raced better than ever, many runners setting new personal records times.
On Saturday morning Christendom College’s Cross Country team set out on their second meet of the season at James Madison University. After a week of training and focusing on speed work and pacing, athletes lined up at the starting line to put their training to the test.
After two full weeks of training and three days of intense mini camp, Christendom College athletes on the cross country team competed in their first official race as a collegiate sport. Runners toughed out the hot, humid weather, training hard.
Whether in the crisp, fresh morning or the cool evening, chasing down the sunset, students have been crowding the running trails here at Christendom this past month. These runners are part of a monumental group- they are members of Christendom College’s first ever Cross Country team.
