Trabuco Hills High School Cross Country



ElliptiGo Fundraiser

Liam Clemons

ElliptiGo GoFundMe Campaign

The Cross Country Team at Trabuco Hills High School is looking for help to purchase two ElliptiGO 8C cross training bikes. The bikes are intended to help our runners avoid serious injury without sacrificing precious training time. Our runners put in a lot of miles and work hard to compete with the best. These bikes will help us keep them healthy and running their best.

A small donation of $10 is all we ask you to consider to help us continue to keep pace with the best programs in California. Click below to donate.


3rd Annual Alumni Challenge / Boys Tryout

Liam Clemons

The third edition of our Alumni Challenge race will be held on Saturday, July 28. We will run the home course on campus at THHS, which is 3 miles over mixed terrain with a hill or two in the middle.

This is also the only Tryout date for Boys Cross Country. Boys wishing to tryout for Cross Country must participate in the race. We will run a 2-mile version for incoming Freshmen.


  • Race starts at 7:30 AM
  • The race is 3 miles, starting on the upper field and finishing on the track.
  • We will score the races as alumni vs the current team, separated by gender (if we get more ladies this year).
  • Awards for top finishers
  • Team champions get their team time engraved on the trophy

Determined Trabuco Hills runner Michelle Cross refuses to be slowed by cerebral palsy

Liam Clemons

From the OC Register, Sept. 15, 2016

Determined Trabuco Hills runner Michelle Cross refuses to be slowed by cerebral palsy

Darrell Cross had spent plenty of time trying to teach his nearly 10-year-old daughter, Michelle, how to ride a bike, but even training wheels weren’t working.

A bicycle shop employee told him to take off the pedals and let her “Fred Flintstone it,” or push herself on the bike using her feet. Turns out, he was on to something.

The pedals removed, Michelle guided the bicycle through the neighborhood for an entire weekend. Soon after, with pedals reattached, she was riding like a pro.

Summer Conditioning Camp 2016

Liam Clemons

Our 2016 season begins with our Summer Conditioning camp. The purpose of camp is to prepare each potential cross country runner for tryouts. Practices for the camp are Monday-Saturday from 6:30AM-9:30AM. Practices start and end at the Lake Forest Sports Park near the large grass soccer fields. Each practice includes:

  1. a proper warm-up
  2. instructions and teaching about running fundamentals and philosophy
  3. main workout
  4. strength training
  5. stretching
  6. instructions on how to prepare for the following day

There are six to eight coaches present at each practice to ensure that every runner gets the attention they need.

The fee for this year's camp is $252, which works out to a mere $3.50/hour. Each registered runner is eligible to participate in the first tryout race on July 29 (only registered runners may participate). There will be a second tryout for non-registered runners on August 19.

The Conditioning Camp officially concludes on August 6, but practices will continue each day until school begins.


All runners must tryout for the Cross Country Team. Runners must meet or exceed the following qualifying times.

  • Freshman Boys - 14 minutes for 2-miles
  • Freshman Girls - 16 minutes for 2-miles
  • Sophomore Boys - 20 minutes for 3-miles
  • Sophomore Girls - 24 minutes for 3-miles
  • Junior and Senior Boys - 19 minutes for 3-miles
  • Junior and Senior Girls - 23 minutes for 3-miles

End of Season 1600m Time Trial Results

Liam Clemons

Below are the results of the 1600m Time Trials that were ran on November 6. All results were combined to show each runner's overall performance. For all boys who ran under 6:00 and girls who ran faster than 7:00, this serves as your tryout for the Track & Field Team. Congratulations!

If your time was slower than 6:00 for boys and 7:00 for girls, don't despair, you will have multiple opportunities to run faster before February rolls around. Some athletes will make the team based on overall attitude, attendance, and improvement. Character counts!




Time Trial #2 Results

Liam Clemons

Today's time trial at the Lake Forest Sports Park was awesome to watch. The new course challenged the runners to deal with varying grades, terrain, and pacing. We did have to abbreviate the warm-up due to another event taking place at the park, but the athletes responded well and, for the most part, rose to the challenge.

The top ten finishers in each gender will compete in the Varsity Sweepstakes race at the Cool Breeze Invitational on Sept. 5. Happily, there will be two freshmen girls joining that group, Hennnessey Evans and Macie Whitter. Great job to you both!

Congratulations to overall winners Kyle Hess and MaKenna Duda! Congratulations to everyone who set  a PR today as well. Click the links for Results.
