Advent Recreational Cross Country teams compete within the Birmingham Regional Independent Athletic Association (BRIAA) cross country league. Each meet takes place on Saturday mornings at various locations including Westminster, Moody City Park, Jefferson Christian Academy and Shades Mountain. Our cross country program also partners with the United States Track and Field Association to compete outside of the Birmingahm Area. 

Our recreational program is open to all students in grades Pre-K through 6th. We like to encourage all students to compete in all recreational sports as it is a great tool for increasing physical stamina and staying physically active. Many of our student-athletes use cross country to cross train for other sports. Our recreational cross country program has produced 3 runners who have been fortunate enough to compete on a national stage.
