The Cross Country season runs over winter, from April 22 2018  the cost of running Cross Country is included in your summer fee, we do not require additional registering for Cross Country for this season.

Doncaster LAC competes against athletes within the Eastern 7 group, which includes Box Hill, Camberwell/Malvern, Nunawading, Ringwood, 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.

 Time  Distance  Age Group

Please come to the Doncaster LAC table each week so we can record your child’s attendance.


Uniforms

In the Winter we put our Doncaster clubs rivalry aside and run under the Doncaster Centre banner.

Athletes must compete in the Doncaster Uniform (NOT THEIR CLUB UNIFORM). Uniforms will be available at the venues from 9am for the first few weeks of the cross-country season, after that by arrangement with the cross country co-ordinators.
