FCA Falcons Co-ed Cross Country - Fall 2018 Season Starts Soon!

Practice for the 2018 Season starts on August 20. FCA Falcons Cross-Country is excited to add Middle School cross-country in addition to Varsity for the 2018 fall season.  

Like all FCA teams, cross-country exists to glorify God by using our athletic abilities. We have regular devotions and reflect on how often God uses running and racing as analogy for the Christian life.

Practice: The best way to improve in XC is to RUN. We mix regular runs with speedwork and long runs. 

Days: In 2018, practices are typically Monday and Thursday at 4:30-6:00PM and Saturday morning (optional for middle school) at 8:30-10:00AM. Most weeks we will have a meet on Tuesdays.

Location: Mon/Thurs: Cedar Lane Regional Park, 1100 Cedar Ln, Bel Air, MD 21015. Saturdays: Field trip day. Location will vary.


Rules: A cross-country meet consists of a 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) race. Team scoring is accomplished by adding up the places of the top five runners, with low score winning. If we don’t have five runners, we do not score as a team, but individuals can still run and get an individual place. Boys and girls meets are together, sometimes running at the exact same time, and separating results, and sometimes running separate races immediately after the other. The rules for middle school are the same.

League: We are part of the Mid-Atlantic Independent League (MIL) for both middle school and varsity. This league has five schools with XC. The other schools are in Cecil County Maryland, and one in PA. The varsity team also participates in the Maryland Private School State Championship meet and other invitational meets.

Athletes: Cross-country includes varsity and middle school and both boys and girls teams (technically 4 teams) who practice and go to meets together. Our teams consist of both new and experienced runners. All abilities are welcome.

Contact: E-mail Coach Dan Foster at

Registration: The registration fee for 2018 is $210 for varsity and $90 for middle school. This includes league and meet registration, uniforms, team jackets (varsity) or t-shirts (middle school), and home course set-up. Required registration forms are below.
