Your core supports you when you run, and having a strong core will keep you going when you're tired. --------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is very important to have good core strength, it'll help your body be used to running for a long time without any breaks. Especially since in cross-country you have run on hills, in mud, gravel, rivers, and anything really. Cross-country isn't like track and has just one type of ground. Which means you need a lot more strength in certain areas.
