Athens Christian cross country program has a strong tradition of excellence, and our athletes are ready for the challenge. In 2001, Athens Christian cross country was the only sport in GHSA to have won a state championship their first year in GHSA. No one has been able to do it since. The Lord has truly blessed the program over the years, and we give Him complete glory.In a cross country race, teams run outside over hills etc. and compete in a 3.1 mile race. Middle school athletes compete in a 2 mile race over the same terrain. Runners are judged on individual times and a point-scoring method for teams.
Cross country is for tough athletes, mentally and physically!! In all, our one and only goal is to run for the Lord, and to give him complete glory in all that we do!!
