Running to God
Not only do cross country athletes at Holy Trinity Classical Christian School learn the value of physical training, they embrace the correlation between running and one’s journey with God.
Through dedication and perseverance, runners learn how to succeed with the right focus, emphasizing the importance of running for the team and God, not just for individual gain.
Holy Trinity Classical Christian School launched their first cross country team in the fall of 2014, led by Josiah Tobin & Hilary Tobin, teachers and former collegiate track and cross country athletes.
The cross country season officially starts 10 days before the first day of school, but student athletes are provided with a summer training schedule.
The season typically ends in late October, except for students who qualify for State, Regional, and National races in November and December. (During the past two years, Holy Trinity Classical Christian School has had 10 runners qualify for State, 7 for Regionals, and 2 for Nationals.)
Practices are held Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, and there is an optional practice on Saturday mornings at the McTeer Bridge for the whole family.
Races take place on Wednesdays throughout the Lowcountry.
Fall Cross country is open to students in grades 5 and up, and fun run practices each spring are open to grades 4 and up, peaking interest in the next cross country season.
Through healthy competition and participation, students have a sense of accomplishment and excitement as a result of working hard and achieving something they didn’t realize they could do before.
