    Well! For people who actually get into this kind of cross country racing, I always pity them. The winners are always very placed highly by me because it is gruesome to even think about the distance being covered in a competitive manner. I know that even when I go on long-distance trail running, I do stay home to rest for a couple of days before. I can get the energy back. This is really awesome to see though.

      Hello, Kimberly, and thank you.

      It is a great sport, but as you say, you need to train well. And it is awesome to see people start training and get fit when they run cross country. If you aren’t injured or sick, most people get the base after not so long time.

      But it is better to do it slowly but steady. If you want to get the world in one step, it usually is not a good idea!

      Don’t hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything else or if you have any questions.

    This post is really good, mostly because it just doesn’t dwell on how long a cross country race is but also tells us how it works, what o wear when on the race, what to expect, and how to win the race too. It is actually to be a complete guide to a cross country race. I like it a lot. Thanks!

    During such long-distance race, you have to be careful not to miss out on anything you’ll need whole racing, and for me, I always have to go cross-check over and over again before I move. For example, taking cross country racing is a very important thing you must not forget, and I just imagine forgetting my socks?

    I remember taking part in cross country races when at school. They were held in wooded environments, and the paths taken were sometimes a little precarious, so today, I would be sure to wear a cross country running shoes ideally with the rubber sole and spikes.

    I was only about 12, and I think because of the shoes I wore being without spikes, I slipped over frequently, especially when going down slippery slopes of well trampled wet grass.

    It is a good article with plenty of great advice.

    Being from the UK, I am not familiar with Cross Country Teams. Are all Cross Country Races run like this?

      Yes, the shoes are the key thing, will make things better or worse, and in my opinion, many runners need to spend more time getting knowledge about which shoe fits them best.

      About the race, all official tournaments are like this. But sometimes small tournaments can be part of fun between friends or village, and they probably change the rule to fit them better. But that can’t be an official tournament with time and performance in mind.

    I love how you break down the different spike types that are needed to conform to the various surface area. Also, I have never heard of the Gaffer tape that is a good investment, in my opinion, the warm-up sometimes is underestimated thanks for the reminder of the essentials we need the will.

      Hello, Tracey, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      We can never stress enough how important it is to warm well up before race and training. Absolute correct!
