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, Colorado Half Marathon and the BolderBoulder. We are also a member of USA Track & Field (USATF).

Our club has two divisions: competitive and recreational. All levels are welcome, and competition is not mandatory. 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, coaching, pasta parties and more!

Please contact one of our officers, listed below, if you have any questions or would like more information. Grab your running shoes, short shorts and come run with Club Cross Country!
