Our Cross Country 2022 season began on August 22 we meet in Veterans Park at picnic shelter #2 just outside the visitor side of the Ashley High School Stadium at 5:30pm on Mondays and Wendesdays. We serve athletes ages 6-18.

Our program helps athletes build strength, endurance, flexibility, coordination, & speed, all skills built while running cross country that can also be applied to many other sports.
The Cape Fear Flyers want to make running accessible to all young athletes. We offer scholarships for athletes whose family may need assistance so that their young athlete can participate.
