Cross Country

The Winter Cross-Country program takes place between April and August where athletes participate in Cross-Country running on a weekly basis.

Athletes still participate as part of the same Centre that they were in during the Summer Track & Field program, however, unlike the summer program, nearby Centres all participate together usually in different locations.

On any given Cross-Country day, athletes will participate in one event only. The distance of the event the athlete participates in is the same in any Cross Country program across Victoria.

A Cross-Country day is shorter in duration due to fewer athletes participating and only one event per athlete. A Cross-Country day also only involves a single event being run at any one time. These programs are determined by the Cross Country group your Centre is involved with.

The Geelong Little Athletics Cross Country runs are locally based, normally at Easter Gardens, and distance varies depending on age from 1km to 3km. LAVic also offer Region/State competitions through out the season.
