Long before mud runs and bubble runs and glow-in-the-dark rave runs we challenged each other to see who could run faster from here to there. We didn’t look for the easy way; we picked the hardest routes. Who could run faster over that hill? Through that valley? That bog? Twice?
This is cross country. It’s pure. It’s gritty. It’s fiercely, unabashedly competitive. Cross country is the essential footrace. At Portland Running Company we welcome it back every fall.
