Cross Country winter season 2022 is now finished. The next season begins in April 2023.

The Cross Country season runs over winter, from April to August. The cost of running Cross Country is included in your summer fee, we do not require additional registering for Cross Country if you have already paid for the preceding summer 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.


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.
