What Is Cross Country Running?

Cross country running is a sport that is a little different to normal running in three main ways...

#1 The course is set off road

#2 The running surface is uneven and as a result places a greater workload on the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the legs, knees and ankles.

#3 There will be far more challenging areas of terrain. Humps, bumps and hills quite often feature in cross country running races.

The benefits of cross country running is that you'll see some beautiful scenery and the actual impact on your joints will be slightly less than that experienced when running on roads. The downside is they aren't as popular as the usual road races and you may struggle to find any near where you live.
