Cross Country Starts This Weekend

Always a fun, inclusive and enjoyable morning of running around some of our local parklands. This year we will have new courses to enjoy at Morrison Reserve, Lillydale Lake and Margaret Lewis Reserve, as well as the much loved Durham Rd course.

Our opening round will be at Morrison Reserve, Mt Evelyn on the 17th of April. With distances including 500m, 1000m, 1500m, 2000m and 3000m. Athletes of all ages and abilities are welcome to compete in any event they are comfortable with, each event will have a “tortoise” and many will have a “hare”. Look for the club banner to find the start / finish area.

First race is planned to start at 9.00am (500m), please arrive earlier to register, drop your gold coin in the tin and warm up ready for your event.

We have some experienced helpers on board, but will still need some extra hands, if you are able to be part of a regular helpers crew for either course marking, registrations (coins and name collection), timing or results entering, please email events@yarrarangesathletics.org.au
