Cross Country (winter season)

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.

Events are held at various locations within the Wyndham and Hobsons Bay area and commence at 9.30 a.m. The program is usually finished within an hour, and minimal numbers of officials are required.

This season Werribee will also be joining with Altona, Brimbank and Williamstown for some runs.

All children from Under 6 to Under 16 may participate. Distances run at Werribee are:

Age group Distance
Under 6-8 1000 metres
Under 9-10 1500 metres
Under 11-12 2000 metres
Under 13-16 3000 metres
