About the Junior Olympic XC Programs


Cross Country Season:  Register for the Junior Olympic Cross Country Program - we officially start training September 17th, In Colorado Springs and September 11th in Castle Rock for the 2018 Season.

The Cross Country program is for runners age 7-18 who enjoy running and competing.  Even though we are a competitive program we embrace and welcome new to the sport runners or runners involved in other sports.  We work with kids to create a happy runner.  The only requirement is that your runner is able to run 2-3 miles non-stop and that they want to run.
