Welcome to Cross Country (Winter) Season 2016

What’s Cross Country?

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 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 we run cross country

We also participate in a number of team and special events and Open Days (small additional fee applies). These are not compulsory, but great fun. We also have our annual Championship event where all kids receive a medal or ribbon.

When? Saturday mornings 9am to 10am, from 9th April to 20th August 2016. Training on Wednesdays 4:30pm to 5:30pm.

Where? 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 and Churchill Park.

Who? Open to ALL ages from 5-16 years. Mums, Dads and under 5s are invited to have a run/walk too but will need to sign a waiver.

Why?

  • Improve your fitness or build fitness for other sports
  • Be outdoors in winter, away from the computer/TV/phone screens
  • Be with your friends and create new friends
  • To be healthy, create good habits, improve yourself or build your resilience
  • Training for Little Athletics Championships or School events
  • Park run is too long or doesn’t offer enough variety
  • Or just because you love running and being active!
