Team Overview


Pingree’s cross country team competes in the Eastern Independent League (EIL). EIL schools include Bancroft, Beaver Country Day School, Berwick Academy, Concord Academy, Dana Hall School, Lexington Christian Academy, Newton Country Day School, Portsmouth Abbey, and Winsor School. Preparation for competition incorporates periods of building base mileage, resistance training, developing endurance, improving individual speed, developing teamwork, and just plain fun — as well as season-long core and upper body strength conditioning. In addition, the Pingree program provides athletes with nutritional and injury prevention/treatment information and insights.

The cross country team competes and trains on 37 acres of school grounds and neighboring horse trails. Pingree’s home course is considered by coaches, runners, and fans to be one of the most challenging courses in New England.

Pingree cross country runners expand their self-confidence, develop leadership skills, and learn to accomplish goals as members of a team and as individuals. The team values cooperation, sportsmanship, and hard work above all else.
