Victorian All Schools Cross Country Relay Championships

Date: Saturday 15th May 2021

Entries Close: Monday 10th May 2021, 11:59am (Midday)

Location: Norton’s Park, Wantirna, VIC 3152

New to the XCR’21 calendar, Norton’s Park will play host to the All Schools Cross Country Relays. Athletes will start the course on a downhill progression where they will traverse through trail/ bushland and undulating terrain before heading back uphill towards the top of the course and to the start/finish. The course provides great cross country running with excellent vantage points for schools and spectators to support teams.  Norton’s Park will be a great addition to the XCR Schools season.

Due to growing pressures on our AV Clubs, we have taken the decision this year to remove AV Club duties at school winter. For 2021, schools competing in All Schools XCR events will be required to provide helpers. Helper requirements will be confirmed following close of entries, however an estimation will be 1 helper for every 5 teams entered. This process has been used for previous schools’ events including AV Schools Relays and AV Schools Nitro during our summer season.
