Club Cross Country

Club Cross Country provides a community where students, staff and faculty can run and compete together in a fun and challenging environment.

Our team has grown over the past few years and participates in local races including the Colorado College Invite, Rocky Mountain Shootout, Metro State Invitational, Frosty 5K, Snowman Stampede, Platte River Half Marathon Relay, Colorado Half Marathon and the BolderBoulder.

Whether you are looking to run your first 5K or training for a marathon, we are open to all skill levels. We hold weekly practices that are open to all club members.

Club Cross Country dues include a club t-shirt, full and partial race entry fees, race transportation and lodging, uniforms, pasta parties and more.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact one of our officers, listed below.
