Cross country definitely. Something to do with running with people, and not against them that ups the sense of competition, and thus self satisfaction.

football because you take physical beatings, plus running, plus strategy, plus good old fashion grit

track is running

People who have never played football completely under estimate how difficult it actually is. Cross country is a competition against yourself. I'm not saying it's easy, but it's only as hard as you allow it to be. And you aren't exactly forced to think, strategies, react and adapt at the end of a Cross Country meet. Football requires you to stay mentally sharp even when you're physically exhausted and often times in considerable pain.

I believe cross country requires more physical skill. Running is something a LOT of people are not good at, myself being one of them. If you're big and can take a hit, you're good for football. But you gotta exercise your brains out and be a speedy guy to want to be in cross country. Brutal stuff.

Even those big guys in the NFL are world class athletes. Anyone who can jog can be a cross country runner. Granted not just anyone will be successful, but it takes so much more than being big and being able to take a hit to play football. Football players, especially pro players, are probably some of the most well rounded gifted athletes in the world.

Players in team sports, except at the highest level of performance, generally see declines in performance simply because of the team-aspect. So unless we're talking a strongly cohesive football program, then any individual cross country runner is more likely to be 'giving it his/her all' than any individual football player regarding how much hard work is behind the performance.

And I don't think I've seen nearly as much puke from football players as I've seen from cross country runners. So I'm counting that in too.

I play football. But cross country is tougher.

The question wasn't which was tougher. It's which takes more guts and hard work. How much hard work do you put into game planning a cross country meet? How hard is it to convince yourself to run at a moderate pace for an extended period of time?

This is pretty stupid conversation all around, but I do want to point out that if you want to run at a moderate pace, you don't belong on the cross country team.
