Simply exercising.

Requires no skill, all you literally have to do is run. The easiest activity one can do and it is called a sport.

The only reason people do cross country is because they are too small or fragile to do sports like football, soccer, volleyball, or any contact sports. People don't go to Cross country events because who wants to see someone exercise for 15 minutes?!?!?!

This "sport" gets way too much publicity and the runners think that they are better than anyone else simply because they can win. they say Cross is a team event but it really boils down to an individual effort. It is a competition of who is more in shape, not who is better and smarter.

Cross runners often have many shirts explaining that they can run. Most of them are putting down true sports by saying things like, "My sport is your sports punishment"

Please! Your "sport" is exercise. My sport takes BASIC exercise and requires more skill to be able to run AND throw, kick, catch, dive, etc.

It is a sport that is tough but not as tough as a biathlon, triathlon, or any other polyathlon. This is only because biathlons and up include running plus biking, rowing, swimming, or anyother form of strenuous activity.
Cross Country is basically running on courses of different distances which can include various types of terrain.
Derek managed to shit himself and puke everywhere while running a cross country race this summer.

The biggest pussy sport on Earth, Cross Country is based solely on the principle of running away faster than anyone else. It is a sport engineered specifically for anyone who can't hit, score, or defend. Called X-Country by some enormous douche bags, participants are classified by their skinny builds and arrogant attitudes. They believe themselves to be the "toughest" athletes, despite the crippling effect a strained muscle, cramp, or bruise has on them.
"Erin bruised his toe, looks like he can't participate in any Cross Country events for six decades."

"Don't mind his cockiness, he's in Cross Country. I'll go back later and use the real athleticism I've learned from hockey and football to kick his ass."

A sport devised in such a manner as to be nothing more than a great and pointless load of self torture and hatred. A sport in which off-road one could get easily lost and eaten by wild animals. A sport in which the person who falls behind is behind and most likely stays behind FOREVER...like they never find him cuz he dies. A sport for the severely brain-damaged or the extremely brave. A sport in which the scoring...makes absolutely no sense and most of the time the runners dont even understand it. The highschool sport for the extremely uncordinated and super fit runner types.
Cross country - Running out into the desert...with no water...for miles.

Crazy?
Precisely.

A sport for kids who are unathletic. They can run fast for a long time (for the most part), and thats about it. In elementary school they were picked last for soccer, football, kickball basketball, etc. because they lack hand eye coordination, and a general mental capacity to anything other than run in a straight line and hop over the occasional rock or two. Humans have evolved to run, they think doing something natural is somehow a sport.
1. I didn't make the cut for any of the sports teams so I do cross country
2. Nah, I didn't wanna take P.E. it's too hard, just join cross country.

An activity in which men, usually homosexuals, or women, usually dykes who look more manly than the actual men, run around for long periods of time. The reward for running around is a nice shower in the locker rooms with their butt buddies all naked. And if you're lucky some may just drop the soup and you'll get to cornhole their asshole.

Which takes about as much talent as running cross country does.

Just because something is tiring does not make it a sport. Because if that were true, me jerking off for hours at a time could be considered one. You fucking faggots.
Matt: Dude cross country practice was awesome yesterday.

Dave: Yeah! I know! My legs and my asshole are killing me!
