When and where?
NDLAC's cross country season will be held at Foxglove Oval commencing Sunday, 6 May 2018. Our 6th season will run for nine weeks and conclude with handicap races and a presentation of awards on 1 July. Races on the Queen's Birthday weekend will be held on the Monday instead of Sunday.
There is NO cost to athletes already registered with NDLAC, other Little Athletics centres or senior athletics clubs* for the 2017-18 summer season. New athletes are welcome to join NDLAC for the 2017 winter season at a cost of $50 per athlete.
Winter 2018 age groups are the same as those used for the 2017-18 summer season.
The likely weekly program is:
- 4.00pm: 2000m (U11s & U12s) and 3000m (U13s to U17s & open*);
- 4.25pm: 500m (U6s & younger**);
- 4.35pm: 800m (U7s & U8s) and 1500m (U9s & U10s).
While winter season awards will be based on athletes' achievements in the designated distance for their age group, athletes may choose to compete in other distances and/or more than once per week to complement their training program for the schools' representative cross country season. Note that the 500m race is reserved exclusively for U6s and U6s may not compete in other distances. **Registered Tiny Tots may compete as U6s.
