The Apple Valley Christian School Cross Country program has produced outstanding runners and also scholar athletes. The Boys and Girls Varsity Teams have combined to earn 4 CIF Southern Section Academic Championships and 4 CIF State Academic Championships.

Led by Coach Lisa Carlucci, a veteran marathon runner, the middle school and high school teams reach personal and team goals through perseverance and dedication. Often practicing during the early morning hours during summer and then performing in races after school in the desert sun, these students are committed to bring glory to God through their running.
