2023 Region Cross-Country Carnivals

2023 Region Cross-Country Carnivals

The 2023 Region Cross-Country Carnivals are an individual Cross-Country event that also serves as a qualifying event for the 2023 State Cross-Country Championships held at Lake Dewar.

Although it is an individual event, there is a Teams element. The Teams event will be conducted concurrently with the individual event and is based on the results of the first 3 athletes from each Centre across the line.

In order to participate at the State Championships, the entrant must have ‘Competed and completed’ the relevant event at the Region Cross-Country Carnival (* as per Competition Regulation – Rule 602: Participation requirements for Region & State Competitions).

Date: 29th or 30th July 2023 (see table below)

Age Groups: U9 – U17 Athletes

Location: Region Specific (see table below)

Please Note: Dogs are NOT permitted within the venue. Dogs are not permitted at any Little Athletics Victoria event, please ensure you remind your parents, as they will be asked to leave if they arrive with a dog. 


Results (Individual & teams) for each Region will be available via Results Hub by no later than midday-Monday 31st July. Where possible some regions may have access to provide individual results on the day, but where not, we appreciate your patience in them being posted by midday Monday.
