The 2017 Bacchus Marsh Cross Country season commenced on Saturday morning at Masons Lane Reserve. Over 50 athletes competed and it was great to see so many new faces participate. Athletes from Under 6 to Under 16 ran over varying distances from 500m to 3000m around the surrounds of the Reserve . At the conclusion of all events athletes enjoyed a BBQ lunch.
Next week’s meet will be held at Bostock Reservoir, Ballan. Directions – Take “Ballan/Daylesford” exit off the Western Freeway and head towards Ballan. Turn right at “Ballan Mineral Springs” sign, Shaws Road (approx. 4km from freeway exit) and follow the road (mostly gravel) to end – approx. 2kms. The first race will commence at 10.30am. Athletes are encouraged to arrive at least half hour before the first scheduled race to allow time to walk the course and warm up.
Athletes are still welcome to attend any of our Cross Country meets. Meet dates HERE.
