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

Any Little Athletics Victoria registration (insurance) paid since 1 August 2023 will cover you until 31st August 2024. Additional fees ‘may’ apply with your Centre or Cross-Country group to accommodate the winter program. Please contact your Centre for more information.

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.
