Dover Junior High Cross Country


“Cross-country running is a sport in which teams of runners compete to complete a course over open or rough terrain faster than other teams. It differs from road running or track running principally in the course, which may include grass, mud, woodlands, and water, and in its scoring system. Teams are typically composed of between four and twelve runners. It is a popular participatory sport, and usually takes place in temperate regions during the autumn and winter when soft conditions underfoot prevail.”



"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."                                                                                                                                                                                      -Steve Prefontaine





Welcome to the 2008 Dover Cross Country Team!  GO EAGLES!  We look forward to training and racing with you this season, helping you achieve your goals, and seeing our team have great success!  We're very excited about this season, and we need every one of you to make this a great team…everyone counts!


This season we will have 10 races over the course of 2 months.  The official start to our season will be in the middle of August, but all through the summer there will be optional practice runs on Monday and Thursday evenings at the high school.  These summer runs are a great way to get to know your teammates and be in awesome shape for the start of the season.  Even if you can’t make summer runs with the team, you are strongly encouraged to do some running over the summer on your own.


The more people we have out for the team, the more fun and more successful we will be!  If you know of anyone that might like to join, bring them along to a summer run.  They can get the paperwork from one of the coaches there.  They can also go to at any time to contact the coaches through e-mail.

See you this summer,

                                                                                                                        Coach Bahn
