Middle School Cross Country

Team Overview

Drive. Dedication. Commitment. Cross Country doesn’t just build muscle, it builds mental toughness and grit. Our daily training schedule is comprised of distance runs, tempo runs, and strength/weight training (aka “whiteboard workouts”). The goal of the Middle School Cross Country program is for students to develop and gain an appreciation for healthy habits for life, and to learn that the fire to run comes from within. Thus they must respect themselves, their family and the school–in that order.

Martha DeAmbrose

Coach DeAmbrose has been a runner since her freshman year of high school. She has coached the Tampa Prep Middle School Cross Country team for 16 years and the Middle School Track team for 10 years. She lets her athletes help create the whiteboard workouts each day so they own the training. Running has been a lifelong passion for her, and after reaching a few personal running PRs in adulthood, she moved into ultra racing. In 2018 she completed a 50K ultra race through mountainous terrain in Canada, and in 2019 she completed a 50K in the deserts of Arizona. She runs with students during practice to let them know they’re not in it alone, and also to witness the students as they come together to cheer each other on or push a new runner to not give up.
