Cross-country running is a sport in which teams of runners compete to complete a course over open or rough terrain before other teams. It differs from road running or track running principally in the course, which may include grass, mud, woodlands, or water, and in its scoring system. Teams are composed of between five to seven runners. High School Cross Country is generally run over a 5K (5,000 meter or 3.1mile course).
Cross country running is normally scored on a team basis. Points are awarded to individual runners equal to the position in which they cross the finish line (first place gets 1 point, second place gets 2 points, etc). Only the first runners in for a team up to a limit (usually the top five out of seven) are counted towards that team's score.
