Cross Country is fantastic for your fitness and is a perfect complement to other winter sports such as footy and netball, or to keep your fitness level in the colder months. 

Cross Country competition runs from April to the beginning of August (approx. 16 weeks) and forms part of our yearly program. Our athlete’s Summer Season registration also covers registration and insurance for the Winter Cross Country Season.

A small charge, $1 or $2 per week helps to cover our costs for weekly rewards and end of season presentation day.

The season concludes with a Presentation day BBQ – to qualify for major awards at least 50% of the ‘home’ meetings must be completed.  All are welcome.
