The Starting Line

WELCOME TO THE HOME OF EDISON HIGH SCHOOL CROSS COUNTRY!

  •  Follow us on Instagram: @ehsxc
     
  • Join the team Strava group by creating a Strava account and searching for EHXC in the groups (must be a current member of the team to join)
     
  • We have an amazing group of athletes that work hard and are committed to maintaining a level of excellence that Edison Cross Country has become known for. Check out our history page to see how we've done over the years (the page is a work in progress).
     
  • In the Sunset League for 2019, The Boys were in the Surf Division and the Girls were in the Wave Divison. The Boys Varsity finished 2nd, while Girls Varsity finished 4th. The Boys JV finished in 2nd while the Girls JV finished in 3rd. The Boys FS finished in 2nd while the Girls FS finished 3rd. 


Be sure to check back for important information, including keeping track of the Point Sheet (attendance), meet schedule and where we are supposed to be each day. It's recommended that you read the "Cornerstones of Training" and "Stretching Routines" under the Running Resources Page.

  • Keep in touch throughout the year! I use Remind.com to send out alerts to athletes mostly, but as parents it's never a bad idea to see what information your athlete is getting. Sign up following these instructions.

Resolution Run – TBD 

Check out the website, resolutionrun.info. It is a great event that is focused on two things:
1) Raising awareness and support for the McKenna Claire Foundation and
2) raising funds for the Edison Athletic Dept.

–> This event occurs after the season. All athletes will have begun their winter training to start getting ready for track and this is a fun way to get back into it.
