Varsity Cross Country

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

Headed by Emily Scott (Girls' Coach) and Chris Bright,(Boys' Coach) Falcon Cross Country emphasizes the value of every race and practice. Training combines long-distance road work, trail runs, and track intervals to develop our 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 promoting team spirit. Thanks to a dedicated coaching staff headed by Emily Scott and Chris Bright, every runner develops into an excellent competitor.
