Kent nurtures excellent runners: young men known throughout the Founders League for their natural talent, exceptional conduct, and race-day accomplishments.
Running is an adventure. While very much a team sport, running can be a singular experience in many ways. For those who enjoy pushing themselves, setting goals and working hard to reach them, getting out into nature and moving fast, cross country is the perfect endeavor.
Runners at Kent enjoy a great variety of resources. We have amazing trails right on and near campus, with parks, dirt roads, and mountains all around. Our home course is one of the most challenging in New England, built by hand, and certainly one of the most beautiful and natural. Our workouts are varied and interesting. Hills, distance, speed, technique drills, form work, core strengthening, and more form the foundation our strong but well-spaced racing schedule.
The diverse, enthusiastic, and committed group of young men who compose the team are focused equally on strong performances as well as resilience, sportsmanship, and respect.
Coach Jeremy Sokolnicki
Running presents an opportunity to test oneself, push limits, and excel. I hope to instill a passion and enthusiasm for the sport in the young men who join the Kent team. Running has added great balance to my life, and I am routinely reminded by Kent alumni of the enjoyment that their seasons with the team have brought them, and the strong memories that remain with them far into the future. The thrill of the race, the challenge of the workout, the good friends, and the great times are what running is all about. Competing well is a nice bonus!
