Sign up for an XC Remind account for important updates, for both parents and student-athletes! 

Text @nhsxc19 to 81010

Also, we are using the Band app this year to communicate training plans and a master scheduling calendar! Look for the link on our Remind posts (or search Band groups for "NHSXC") to join this group. Practice schedule details will no longer be posted on this website.


As long as you want to run, have fun and be part of a supportive community, you are welcome to join our team.  We are one of the few teams that does not require a tryout or make cuts.


In order to be eligible to run once the xc season officially begins, you will need to have all of your registration documentation (e.g., your "blue form" physical) submitted for approval by AUGUST 23.  Do not delay!

First day of Fall Sports is Thursday, August 26 (after school)


Congrats to Sam Geisler on winning Top Male Athlete honors at NHS last year.  Awesome!!

Mondays - Tempo

Tuesdays - Easy

Wednesdays - either speed intervals or hill intervals (alternate)

Thursdays & Fridays - Easy

Saturdays - Long Run

Sundays - recovery

If you run 3 days/week, you should avoid injuries by building a "base"

By then running 4-6 days/week, you can improve your speed

Note: 1-2 E day(s) each week can be substituted for an extra Rest day

Also, Sat and Sun can be swapped if necessary (due to schedule or weather)
