Winter Cross-Country Program (April to August)
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.
