Wendouree Athletic Club Junior Cross Country Season is conducted each Saturday afternoon from early April through September. (see syllabus below for details).
Each week the run is conducted at different venues in Ballarat and surrounding districts. Most weeks we start at 1.45pm, however there are a few runs where we start at the earlier time of 1.30pm.
The first run of the season is a scratch race, and all other races are conducted on a sealed handicap basis. Points are awarded according to handicap placings with the worst two runs not counting towards the aggregate. Points accumulate over the season to produce winners and placegetters in each age group. Junior Athletes that run in Athletics Victoria race or a regional center race will be awarded invitation points for that day.
Age groups are calculated as of the 1st of April. Age groups are U/6, U/8 and U/10. The juniors and senior athletes generally run at the same venue, with senior events following the finish of the under 10.
ALL participants must wear footwear suitable for running. A named drink bottle of water would also be a good idea.
