York High School XC Workout Video

Legendary coach Joe Newton and his York HS Dukes are featured today on Check out the video of their 5 x 1 mile workout. Coach Newton has been coaching at York for 50 YEARS, winning 26 Illinois cross country state meet titles. His program is definitely high mileage. If you have never read any of his books, check them out at the links below. I was lucky to find them early in my coaching career and while some of the workouts are not for the faint of heart, the motivational stuff is worth the read.

His first book "The Long Green Line" is harder to find but well worth the effort if you can get it. It was written in 1969. Here is one place you might be able to purchase it at a reasonable price. His 2nd book Motivation...The Name of the Game can be found here.

A movie is also in the works about the York Dukes and you can watch a few clips at this link.
