Cross Country blends individual challenge with team camaraderie. Everyone runs the same 3.1 mile race on the same day.  While time is the objective measure of accomplishment, the team cannot perform to its full potential unless team members support AND challenge each other. The Popes pride themselves on physical and mental toughness on every course they encounter, embracing the words of the legendary Steve Prefontaine: "Some people run a race to see who is the fastest. [We] run a race to see who has the most guts." 

The end of the season banquet is a whole team affair with dates and locations provided at the end of the Cross Country season.
