Cross Country is a tiring long distance running sport event. Saint Pius X had their Cross Country. When we started we all went to the courts and sat behind our age group. We started from 12-13 yr old then went down our age group.
Sometimes a Cross Country can go for 2.5 km and more. But we Saint Pius run for two laps. It takes a lot of stamina to keep up. When we run it is good to take a bottle full of water.
There is a starter that says, on your marks, get set, GO!!! Some people run straight away, but some people pace themselves. The points were counted by 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. But the people who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd will be going to the cluster.
The Junior Syndicate have a different course as they only run one lap around the field. It is still tiring because our field is a very big field. They do the same scoring but they are not allowed to be in the cluster.
