Cross country at EDHS involves endurance and dedication. It is offered beginning in September and concludes by early November. Athletes will have the opportunity to compete at various meets held throughout the county. Although runners compete individually, their results also contribute to a team score. Competitors can earn the opportunity to qualify for OFSAA either as a team or individual.
Cross country is offered at the Midget, Junior and Senior levels for both boys and girls.
There are four meets in the season and runners are expected to attend at least two of these meets as well as 16 practices in order to qualify for GBSSA. The runners are coached with a view to developing fitness and agility.
Many of cross country athletes also find success on the Nordic skiing team and the track and field team.
