The cross country team has enjoyed a long history at Tilton. The program is flexible enough to accommodate both, the advanced highly competitive runner and the first-time runner new to team sports. Our training program is based on the tried and true methods used by high school and college programs. Our goal is to turn non-runners into runners and good runners into better runners. Most importantly, we want a positive experience for every member of the team.
Tilton School competes in the Lakes Region League of the New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). Our season typically consists of 6 or 7 races, one or two of which are hosted at Tilton School. In addition to the Lakes Region Championships, Tilton runners also have the opportunity to compete in the NEPSAC Division III Championships. Tilton routinely places runners on the Lakes Region All-Star list. As part of continuing our team tradition, we are looking for committed runners with a competitive streak to continue to help build the program and push us to the top of the league.
We begin our season with a “preseason” running camp. Usually lasting 4 days, the camp gives the runners a chance to meet some teammates, set goals for the season, have some fun, and run through the beautiful countryside of New Hampshire.
