Cross Country

The Cross Country season runs over winter, from April 28 2019  the cost of running Cross Country is included in your summer fee, we do not require additional registering for Cross Country for this season.

Ringwood LAC competes against athletes within the Eastern 7 group, which includes Box Hill, Camberwell/Malvern, Nunawading, Doncaster, Kew and Collingwood.   Races are held on Sunday mornings, at various locations around the Eastern suburbs, from 9.30am and we’re usually finished around 11am.

In addition to the regular Cross Country runs you might like to consider participating in one or more of the many Open Day’s offered by various Little Athletic Centre’s.
