Fall Cross Country Season Information

has begun but there's still time to register!!

Fall is on the horizon, which means it is time to lace up those running shoes and hit the ground running! The Greenville Hurricanes Cross Country program would love to have your student join us for a sport that can be perfect for any athlete. In the unique team sport of cross country, your athlete has the opportunity to be a part of an amazing running family, working together as a team, while still achieving individual goals. We invite you to join us next week if you are new and see how it all works! Cross Country registration ends August 12th

Who Can Participate:

Hurricane Cross Country is open to male and female students in 6th** through 12th grades who are homeschooled or who attend a school that does not offer a Cross Country program.

** 6th graders will only be able to register for the season if they participated in Spring Conditioning.


Registration Fee - $125


  • Multiple runners in the same family will receive a $25 discount.

  • 6th Graders will receive a $25 discount. (6th graders cannot participate in some competitive meets.)

Uniform - $50, if needed (We will reuse black uniforms and cycle out any previous ones. Because these are not personalized, runners can wear previous runners’ uniforms if available and they coordinate themselves.) 

Paperwork Requirements:

Athletes must turn in a sports physical, completed by a physician within the last year and a copy of birth certificate. (For returning athletes, birth certificates are kept on file.) 


Athletes should have appropriate running attire, running shoes, and a stop watch. They will need a water bottle and towel or yoga mat at all practices. 


Students should be able to run one mile in 10 minutes, as a prerequisite for fall cross country. Please contact Coach Julie to discuss if your child has not participated in the past.

Practice Information:

Practices are held Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, primarily at Taylors First Baptist Fields (Taylors Road). Most practices will be held from 3:30-5:00 pm, but some may change to 4:30-6:00 pm to accommodate complex schedules. We will also meet at Pittman Park on Blacks Road or the Swamp Rabbit for some long runs. Students are required to attend a minimum of two practices a week unless approved in order to participate in meets. More miles will be assigned for students to complete outside of practices.
