On October 5, the EPHS cross country team will be sponsoring their annual one-mile cross country race for all 4-6th grade students in Eden Prairie. It will be held at CMS from 4:30-6:00. Our goal is to support the fitness being taught in PE classes and to encourage kids to pursue running as a lifelong activity. But perhaps most importantly, it will be a great way to foster school and EP pride by having kids from all schools come together for a district-wide activity!
In the past two years, we’ve had over 120 kids participate—it has been a fun event for kids and families.
The race is FREE and each student who participates will receive a t-shirt! We want to make it fun and accessible for ALL students. Register online (www.cpxc.org) or show up at the race. EPHS student-athletes will “coach” kids from their former elementary schools—another chance to foster elementary school pride.
