Cross Country-info

Cross Country runs from April through to August each year, after Track and Field.
Competition is on Saturday mornings at 9am, and is usually finished by 11am.

We meet at various locations around the Knox area.
Dates and locations are listed on the Knox LAC calendar.
Parents also have an opportunity to do a few ‘training runs’ during the season.
