    Welcome to the CDMS Cross Country Home Page!
    The Middle School Cross Country experience is designed for all students of all ability and fitness levels.  We encourage walkers, joggers, and competitive runners to join Cross Country in the Fall. Students can create their own goals for what they want to get out of the program.
    For those who are competitive, we do offer the opportunity to compete in several events throughout the fall and spring.  The team aspect of cross-country is a great physical, mental, and social experience for all middle school athletes.  While we encourage all participants to compete with the team, it is the students' choice.  Those that do not compete can go to watch and help out at the meets.


    1. Show up prepared and ready to run.
    2. Always give your best effort.
    3. Listen to your coaches.
    4. Show respect.
    5. Have fun.

    All people are born to run.  Our bodies are built to run incredible distances and are also capable of generating great speed.  Everyone is born with this ability.  How we care for our bodies throughout our lives determines whether or not we can fulfill this gift.  The most challenging part is getting started.  The first couple of weeks will not feel good.  But get over the hump and you will find great pleasure in doing what your body was built to do.  Your body has an unbelievable ability to adapt to the demands placed upon it.  Run and you will become a runner. 

    Maps and directions to the meets can be found under "Athletics" and "Maps and Locations" from the CDMS main page. Specific addresses for away meets can be found on the schedule page of the XC website.
