A Foggy Start Last Saturday

A foggy start to the latest round of cross country for Yarra Ranges Athletics athletes as they took on the challenges presented at Margaret Lewis Reserve in Coldstream. Some mud, a couple of hills and eventually some sunshine made for a fantastic morning of cross country.


Our senior team travelled to Cruden Farm, Langwarrin for Round 4 of the XCR season.

The club had 18 members competing including debut cross country participation from Jared Byrne, Chris Grundy and Abi Hyndman.

Always a fun but testing course, made even more so by the recent rains making for very soft underfoot conditions. The course was a little different to previous years meaning not as many shoes lost in mud pit and much faster times.

Congratulation to the medallists!

It also looks like our open men have won both divisions (3 & 6) to retain their respective positions at the top of the ladder.

Next Weekend

Our Saturday morning cross country will be at Lillydale Lake.

Make sure to stay tuned to the YRA Clubhouse Facebook page should there be any changes to events due to COVID restrictions.
