Virtual Running Club

Due to current State Covid mandates, CHSAA, DPS and East High School regulations, a limit to the size of the 2020 East High School Cross County (XC) Team has been enacted. As a result, there is a need to offer East High School students a “team-inspired” opportunity to continue to train and participate in a Cross Country sport via a Virtual Running Club (VRC).

The VRC is available for any East Runners not participating in Cohorts 1 or 2.  Cohorts 1 and 2 are welcome to join the VRC after their XC season ends.  

How to join

  1.  Sign up for our training app, Final Surge.

     Click one of these on your phone:

     Download from the App Store Android Play

    Or, go to https://www.finalsurge.com  on your computer.  After you join Final Surge, email Coach Kohuth at steven_kohuth@dpsk12.org so he can add you to the team.

  2. Fill out this VRC Contact Info Form

    3.  Join the VRC text group by texting @runclub21 to 81010

Meetings

Training

Runners are meeting on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the E at 4:00pm Other training can be done on your own or with friends or your family. Workouts are posted on Final Surge.

Athletes must wear a mask when not running and stay socially distant. Athletes should not show up if they have any symptoms of Covid 19.

Links for Lunge Matrix and Core X

Runners should do the Lunge Matrix before their runs and Core X after their runs.

Races

Runners can run five 5Ks in the fall of 2020 and a 1/2 marathon in the spring of 2021. If the weather holds, we will have socially distanced pre-race picnics the evening before each race.
