Cross Country is our Winter Athletics season. It is family orientated and we encourage and allow all members of the family to participate. We run and race on all types of tracks … through puddles, bush trails, mud and open grass and in all weather conditions.
We participate in a number of team events, competition events and handicap races to add variety. To finish the season, we have a Championship race where all kids receive a medal or ribbon and a presentation night to cap off the season. Participation trophies are awarded to all children who have run a minimum of 8 events. We encourage all abilities and reward PB’s (personal bests). It’s not just how fast you run, it’s how much you can improve.
Each Saturday at 9am we will run events with the approximate distances - races are finished by 10am and age is as at 31st December 2019:
Under 6- 7 - 1000m, Under 8-9 1500m, Under 10-11 2000m, Under 12-16 3000m
Cross Country Training (optional):
Mondays & Wednesdays 4.30pm – 5.30pm @ Edwin Flack Reserve.
Most events will be held in the grass areas surrounding Edwin Flack reserve, Manuka Rd, Berwick. To make things interesting, we also run in local park lands such as Cardinia Reservoir, Lysterfield lake, Akoonah Park and Aranmore lake.
