TLAC X-Country 2019 season information

 

Welcome to our x-country season.

This is the first season we have run x-country that I can remember so we are excited to offer this extension to our season.

We are also excited to welcome Moe Little Athletics Centre who will be running x-country with us.

X-country is a great way to maintain fitness over the winter months. It can complement all winter sports and provides a fun social event for Little Aths of all ages. As with our summer meets we encourage everyone to participate and athletes can look to improve their results each week.

  • Venue – Traralgon Railway Reservoir Conservation Reserve, Hickox street, Traralgon.
  • Time – 9.50am for race briefing. Please arrive in time to sign in and collect your arm band.
  • Race start time - 10am sharp
  • Races are timed
  • Cost - $10 per athlete for the season. 
  • Centre uniform must be worn – you can wear long sleeve shirt underneath if cold.
  • Parent helpers are required each week

Upon arrival athletes will need to sign in and collect their arm bands. We will have different coloured arm bands for the different distances.

Depending on numbers we may start all athletes together.

A rough map of the course is attached. The course will be marked with directional arrows on the ground and some posts and flagging. We will also have some parents positioned around the course.

Please note there are NO TOILET FACILITIES at the venue. Whilst a little inconvenient we don’t estimate that you will be at the venue for more than an hour so please take that into consideration before leaving home.

As this is the first time we have run x-country we are open to suggestions and assistance.

Thank you
