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

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.
