Varsity Cross Country

Peddie's Cross-Country program is defined by endurance, spirit, and most of all, a simple love of running.

The Peddie boys' cross country program took home the 2018 Mid-Atlantic Prep League title, their first since 2014, and placed three runners on the All-MAPL (Mid-Atlantic Prep League) team. Training combines long-distance road work, trail runs and track intervals to develop runners' speed and endurance. Running mechanics, recovery techniques, strength training, and proper nutrition are also emphasized. Above all, the program's goal is to instill in its athletes the joy of running while strengthening team camaraderie. The finish line is not just reserved for the front runners, but also for the unsung athlete who deals out valuable lessons in commitment and teamwork.
