Welcome to the Lake Highland Cross Country page. Our goal in this program is to promote running as a lifetime sport in a true team atmosphere. Our sport truly is one where everyone who runs counts! No prior experience is neccessary and we encourage anyone to come out and try out for the team. There are no cuts and we have JV as well as a Varsity racing team. So you may be a complete beginner, someone who wants to get in shape for another sport or a competitive runner who has aspirations to run at the college level. All our welcome in our program! Each athlete has their own workouts and mileage programs created that best suits them and their experience.
