Calling all Cross Country runners!

It is a Teams event, where 3 athletes complete a Relay over a Cross-Country course and is open to all U9-16 Athletes (even if not participating in regular Saturday cross-country events). Athletes do not carry a baton; they start and finish within a transition zone.

The Team must consist of 3 athletes from the same gender.
Athletes can only run one leg of a Relay, and athletes cannot compete in more than one Team.

Teams are entered by the Centre, there is no charge to Athletes. If you are interested in taking part, please email Janine Dixon on firstname.lastname@example.org by this Sunday May 16. You don't have to put together a whole team - Janine will collate the entries and get teams together. If we can't make up complete teams from within our club there is the option to create combined Southern Metro Region teams with other clubs but we may need a bit of time to organise that. Athletes can run up to two age groups higher than their usual age group if necessary to form teams.
Any questions, please feel free to contact Janine.
