Between April and August, Bacchus Marsh Little Athletics Centre conducts Cross Country runs at times and venues as set out by the Committee.

The 2021 program can be found HERE.

Cross Country running is an important part of Little Athletics. It is an ideal way for those athletes who like the longer distances to enjoy a different style of competition. Further, participating in the program is beneficial for building strength and stamina for the next season of track and field events.

All children from Under 6 to Under 16 may participate.

Distances run at Bacchus Marsh are:
Age Group       Distance
Under 6            500 mts
Under 7-8         1000 mts
Under 9-10       1500 mts
Under 11-12     2000 mts
Under 13-16     3000 mts

The season consists of approximately 13 Centre meetings plus Region and State Championships.

Summer season BMLAC registration also covers athletes for the Cross Country season. However, new members are welcome to BMLAC during the Cross Country season for a registration fee of $75.
