High School Cross Country

Fall High School Cross Country Program

The Memphis Youth Athletics High School XC Program is a 5 week series of meets for all girls and boys in grades 9-12 that teaches the fundamentals of distance running. This series includes the Frank Horton Classic and ends with a County Championship. Memphis Youth Athletics serves to help fund, foster, and expand a sport that provides positive health benefits to its participants.  If your school does not have a program and you would like one, then we can get you started! Everyone is welcome, whether your school has a program or not, you are home-schooled, or just love to run!!
