Eastview has developed a 2.0 mile cross country grass course. We are beginning to partner with local JH schools to host invitationals. We also would love to partner with our local elementary schools to create and host a fun introduction to competitive running!
Our goal is to connect with as many local elementary schools that have some interest in promoting an event of this kind. We will have awards for finishers and hype up the night of the event. We want this to be an event where schools that allow 5th and 6th grade athletes to compete within their school cross country program feel welcome to let these younger athletes enjoy a stage with their same aged peers. We will have the course decked out and make this a fun night for all involved. Over time, we want to grow this into a premier cross country event for Illinois!
Family and school friendly
We want to make and keep this event low cost to families and school teams. In addition our focus is to build an atmosphere that encourages kids to choose healthy, lifelong athletic events. The event will have music, prizes and food! The fourth grade fun run is meant to be an independent opportunity that allows younger kids to experience what the sport of cross country looks like (we expect this to be a mostly Mclean County elementary students – however it is open to all).
AD’s and coaches: We have had conversations with the IESA to understand how to host in such a way that does not put students at risk of their IESA eligibility. So each race is independent of school teams. The preferred entry method is for coaches to share with parents and they can sign up independently. If schools need support with alternatives for entry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional options.
Medals to top finishers.
