Winter Cross Country Season…

Winter Cross Country Season…..Fast Approaching! Here is what you need to know…..

Season Commencement

The season will start at a club favourite course, Bottle Forest (Hill Extension course) on Saturday 3rd April 2021. Start time for races will be as follows:

1.50pm- 1km
2pm- 2km
3pm- 3km

Given that it is the first week, runners are asked to come earlier to sign in (using QR code) and purchase/pick up a timing chips if one is needed for the season.

Season Schedule

A schedule of the season has been produced and will be published shortly. Whilst have been given possible dates for ANSW State events, we note that the season schedule may adjust depending on the finalisation of these events.

Season Presentation

The final SDAC winter cross country race will be held at Sylvania Track on the 14th August and will include a season ending BBQ and presentation award winners. We expect this timeline will align to the recommencement of the summer 2021/22 track season (on a return to normal season basis).
