Cross Country - Girls Varsity
The girls’ cross country program takes advantage of Berkshire’s beautiful setting with a course that has striking views of the campus. The course is challenging, but idyllic in that it truly incorporates a variety of different terrain. There are hills, meadows, woods, and even a brook to cross. It is clearly marked each year per NCAA regulations, with double white lines and directional signs. Additionally, favorite running loops on country roads in the surrounding rolling hills of southwestern Massachusetts provide even more territory than Berkshire’s own 400 acres.
Berkshire runners compete in the annual Canterbury Invitational, a number of Division I and II dual, tri, and quad meets, and the New England Prep School Championship - which Berkshire has proudly hosted a number of times. Though we have established a tradition of excellence, runners of every talent level are encouraged to come out for Cross Country at Berkshire. Creating a team that appreciates each other and the sport of running is the ultimate goal every season.
