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  on your computer.  After you join Final Surge, email Coach Kohuth at 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


Our meetings have been changed to every other Thursday. Next meeting is 10/29 at 6:00pm.  The link for every meeting is: Google meets link


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.


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.
