For the first time Athletics Victoria hosted a round of XCR at the renowned Cruden Farm, the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch’s famed home and gardens in Langwarrin.
With great support from Frankston Athletics Club the day was great success and the feedback suggested this could become a feature on the XCR calendar for years to come.
Once again Western Athletics had a strong showing at XCR’16 Round 3, with Mia White (Girls – U14), Liam Cashin (Boys – U20) and Jack Rayner (Men – Open) all claiming line honours.
Glenhuntly runner Tarli Bird made it back-to-back XCR wins in the women’s open division, on the two courses included in 2016.
It was also great to see Australian Triathlon representative Annabel Luxford competing for Yarra Ranges after morning training session that included 100km bunch ride.
