East Track Update (Track still cancelled)

FYI – in-person practice on the East Track is still cancelled for this week as originally planned for session 8. The previous post was for the East Cross Country Virtual Running Club. We will keep you updated with any news regarding the restart of off-season training for Track & Field. Thanks! – Coach Tasker

Running Club Schedule Changes – December

Due to the lack of sun and the increase in covid cases, we are changing the running club schedule.

In December, the group will only meet once a week on Wednesdays, depending on your school schedule, at 9:30am or 3:00pm at the big E. This will cut down on the size of the group and allow you to run in daylight. During winter break, we will not meet.

The other days will be virtual or you can meet and run in small groups. We will post training schedules for those training for 5Ks and another set of training schedules for those training for an April half marathon. See Final Surge for workout details.

We will not run a 5K in December. If cases decrease, we will try to run a 5K in January. If they increase, we won’t.

Remember masks and social distancing are required at practice. You can remove your mask during your run, but they must be worn at all other times.

We hope you all had a nice fall break!!

Hey Track Athletes!

Sorry for the post about letters and academic awards. Those are for our XC distance runners.

Track and Field awards will be awarded after the T&F season. We are so excited for the 2021 track & field season, stay tuned for more details on pre-season workouts and info on the season.

Letter & Academic Awards

We will pass out letter and academic awards on Thursday, November 19 from 4:00 – 4:30pm on the Esplanade by the E. If you didn’t get your covid, four year award, or cookie, those will also be available.

If you haven’t returned your uniform, you can also do this at the same time.

This is “drive by” style.   Wear your mask and drive on by!  

Hope to see you tomorrow!

SESSION 8 CANCELLED

Due to the rising numbers of the COVID-19 Virus, Denver East has elected to not participate in Session 8, which was scheduled to begin next week and run through December 4th.  As of now only Session 8 is cancelled and we will re-evaluate for Session 9 after the Thanksgiving Holiday, which is currently scheduled to begin December 7th, fingers crossed. 

We will be posting workouts to be done on your own here on the website two or three times a week. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.  Have a wonderful Holiday break, and stay safe!

 —Michael Tasker,  Head Track & Field Coach

This Thursday we are going to host a virtual google hangout to help send our seniors off properly. Coach Kohuth and myself will speak about the seniors, we will also let the seniors and their teammates say some words if they would like. I will send out the google hangout link Thursday morning. It is open to all East Track Athletes and your families if they’d like to attend. If you have a senior on our team and have not yet emailed me pictures and a short bio, please do so as soon as you can. This will be a very informal event, but gives us one last opportunity to gather as a team.
