As members of Timnath Cross Country, every student athlete will have an opportunity to build and add to a Timnath running tradition dating back almost 70 years ago to a track state championship in 1953. Yes, we will perform at extremely high levels and accomplish big goals, but the tradition will be about more than fast individual times and low team scores. We will seek to represent our community with class, integrity, humility, and gratitude. We will stay standing in the chute while we congratulate our competitors, show appreciation to our hosts, thank drivers, parents, and others who make our seasons possible. We will be the athletes that pick-up trash, greet community members on runs, and leave places and spaces better than we found them. Our highest honor will not be a trophy- it will be a phone call or email to our athletic director complimenting how we carry ourselves. We will also come together as a team to form a tightly bonded community, and will become contributing members of the greater running community and will have the opportunity to learn from some of running’s standard bearers. As a founding team member, you will create a legacy, shaping the front end of the Long Blue Line that will be Timnath Cross Country.
