Cross-country running

Cross-country running consists of running specified distances over varied terrain, including hills, grass, pavement and sometimes even water. In high school the distances vary, usually three(3) miles or five(5) kilometers. In college and professionals the courses vary from 8-10k for men and 4-6k for women. No official records, except course records exist for this sport, owing to the fact that no two courses are the same.
