Cross Country

Cross Country

Cross Country is an All Year sport, with races taking place in the Winter season.

General

There will be 9 Cross Country League Races and the Zonal Champs this season (therefore 10 races in total).  All races will take place on Wednesday afternoons, except the Zonal Champs, which will take place on a Tuesday (due to a public holiday).  In order to qualify for the district team, athletes must compete in at least 7 league races and the Zonal Champs in order to be considered for selection.

Transport

Fairmont will be providing transport to and from all the league races.  The bus will leave directly after school and should be back at school no later than 6pm (all dependent on traffic).

Running gear

Athletes must compete in the Fairmont Athletics vest, green shorts or tights.  In the colder months, athletes may wear a white or black shirt (short or long sleeve) under their vest (no other colour will be allowed).  Athletes can run barefoot or with shoes (trainers or spikes).
