Developing Distance Runners & Good Citizens
Through the Cross Country program at Thomas Jefferson, Middle and Upper School athletes learn life lessons that remain with them long after they cross the finish line. By developing skills as a distance runner, students learn self-discipline, mental toughness, the value of hard work and team work, and the importance of healthy living.
As a Cross Country team member, students also learn good sportsmanship, developing the virtues of patience, self-discipline, and the ability to be humble when winning and calm when losing.
Your child does not need to be an experienced runner to participate. Our inclusive program allows all students to test new capacities and discover new talents without fear of being cut from the team.
