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 represent their registered Centre they were with in during the Summer Track & Field program, however, unlike the summer program, and in some cases nearby Centres can participate together sometimes in different locations, if numbers permit the Centre may run their own Cross Country program.
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.
