Weekly Newsletter – July 7

Last Saturday

Thanks to some quick handiwork from YRA’s resident chainsaw extraordinaires we were able to enjoy another round at our home venue – Morrison Reserve. A huge thank you to the XC team for getting us back up there despite some rather large trees impeding the course!

This Saturday

Yarra Ranges Athletics cross country will be at Margaret Lewis Reserve. We look forward to seeing everyone down there!

Arrive by 8:45am for races to begin by 9:00am.

Don’t forget to bring some warm clothes to change into afterwards. Coldstream will be pretty chilly!


Best of luck to our Seniors back and racing this weekend at people’s favourite venue; Cruden Farm. Make sure you don’t lose your shoes in the mud pit! We look forward to seeing the smiles, the grimaces, and the excitement as we return to the XC circuit.

Seniors, please note that following this week of XC there will be XC at Bundoora Park on Saturday 17th July. Entries for this close NEXT WEDNESDAY at 11:59am.

The 2021 Heritage Round is at Cruden Farm, hosting 8km and 12km distances. The grounds of Cruden Farm offer athletes a challenging course with a mixture of different terrains to accompany the beautiful areas encompassing the farm.

The change of date for this event (from Saturday 26 June to Saturday 10 July 2021) means there has been a long layoff since Lardner Park. Therefore, we will be offering an invitational non-XCR scoring 8km event at Cruden Farm, also on Saturday 10 July 2021, for Open Men and Women, W40, M40 and M50+, in addition to the previously scheduled events.

This event is an excellent opportunity for clubs to showcase their history, and we encourage each club to do so again in 2021.
