In international competition, a team typically consists of six runners, with the top four scoring. In the United States, the most common scoring system is seven runners, with the top five scoring. Points are awarded to the individual runners of eligible teams, equal to the position in which they cross the finish line first place gets 1 point, second place gets 2 points, etc.
The points for these runners are summed, and the lowest score wins. Individual athletes, and athletes from incomplete teams teams consisting of less than 5 athletes or teams and individuals who have been disqualified are excluded from scoring. Ties are usually broken by the position of each team's sixth runner. In some competitions a team's sixth and seventh runner are scored in the overall field and are known as "pushers" or "displacers" as their place can count ahead of other runners, giving other teams more points.
Accordingly, the official score of a forfeited dual meet is 15— Strategy Because of differences between courses in running surface, frequency and tightness of turns, and amount of up and downhill, cross country strategy does not necessarily simplify to running a steady pace from start to finish. Coaches and cross country runners debate the relative merits of fast starts to get clear of the field, versus steady pacing to maximize physiological efficiency.
Some teams emphasize running in a group in order to provide encouragement to others on the team, while others hold that every individual should run his or her own race. In addition, whether you run ahead 'of the pack' or behind it and pull ahead in the end is important, but can vary according to the runner's individual skill, endurance, and the length of the race.
Runners should also account for food intake prior to the race. Most important, however, is the training beforehand. Most races are run in shorts and vests or singlets, usually in club or school colours.
In particularly cold conditions, long-sleeved shirts and tights can be worn to retain warmth without losing mobility.

If a course has a harder surface, spikes as short as 6 millimetres 0. While spikes are suitable for grassy, muddy, or other slippery conditions, runners may choose to wear racing flatsrubber-soled racing shoes without spikes, if the course includes significant portions of paved surfaces or dirt road. Formal cross country competition traces its history to the 19th century and an English game called "hare and hounds" or "the paper chase ".
English schools started competing in cross country races inand established a national championship on December 7, It was held on Wimbledon Common in south-west London. It was the first cross country race that was considered "open", or could be run by anyone. Its original purpose was to imitate steeplechase for off-season training, and was considered a bit of a joke.
