  • Since you may not have access to a track, you may need to run these intervals as a fartlek, or you may set up your own course on a trail or field and run for an equivalent amount of time or estimate the distance. For instance, if a 200m sprint normally takes you 40 seconds, simply sprint 40 seconds on a trail, road or field.

COVID-19 Update

Hello East Track Family,
Due to COVID-19 concerns CHSAA has made the decision to suspend all Spring Sports Activities until April 6th. This means no practice or competition for our Track & Field team until at least that date.
However, today (3/12), we will be having a meeting on the East track at 3:30pm to debrief this information with our athletes.
Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any question at cotasker@gmail.com or 720.648.8943.
Thank you,
Coach Tasker
