Come down for a run and a bit of fun!
Cross Country State Relays Championships
Cross country Relays will take place June 4th for athletes in the u9-16 age groups. This is a state event held at Cruden Farm in Langwarrin. In the next few weeks, we will open up registrations for Cross Country Relays!
The State Cross-Country Relay Championships is a Teams event, where 3 athletes complete a Relay over a Cross-Country course. The distances are less than the individual Cross-Country distances to allow greater flexibility and formation of Teams. Athletes do not carry a baton, they start and finish within a transition zone.
U9 & U10: 3 x 1km
U11 & U12: 3 x 1.5km
U13, U14, U15 & U16: 3 x 2km (2 laps of 1km)
Every year Little Athletics Victoria holds events at the Stawell Gift. This year Little Athletes could enter 100m, 400m, 800m and 1600m.
We had one athlete go up and enter all 4 events.
Congratulations to Declan Maling, who was one of the only athletes to run in all the events, and also make the final in each event!
Special thanks to all our sponsors for their support throughout the past 12 months. Always remember to check our sponsors first before going elsewhere, and to mention Cranbourne Little Athletics
