CPDC | 2019-2020

Where to find us

Cal Poly Distance Club is open to anyone who wants to run. Whether you are looking to compete, or you are just looking for a group of running buddies CPDC is the place for you.

During the school year, we meet Monday through Friday at 4:10 PM near the 50M mark on the track. Feel free to swing by, check us out, and meet some great people!

WHAT ARE WE ALL ABOUT?

CPDC is one of the top teams in NIRCA (National Intercollegiate Running Club Association). We travel up and down the west coast of California in order to fit as many races as we can during the seasons.

Our daily practices are more like sweet hangouts, while running. But, we do things besides running too! Come check out our IM flag football team, toss a frisbee around with us, come camping, or hang out at our movie nights.

CPDC is dedicated to making the city and county of San Luis Obispo a better place. We love volunteering at local events like the trail maintenance days out at MontaƱa De Oro, and the SLO City Marathon.

Next competitive milestones were as a master's runner 4:05 (1500m), 15:18 (5K), 20:03 (4 miler at Baywood), 31:25 (10K). Started coaching 2004 and in the first five years coached the following school records at Mission Prep... Girls 2:09 (800m), 4:14.5 (1500m), 4:39 (1600m), 9:52.2 (3200)- Jordan Hasay's.
