Please be advised that due to the current restrictions still in place across Regional Victoria and Metropolitan Melbourne (as of 17 June), Athletics Victoria has decided to reschedule the 12km individual round at Cruden Farm from Saturday 26 June to Saturday 10 July 2021.

This change means that, unfortunately, the Sandown Relays will be cancelled. The 12km individual round will replace the relays on the XCR calendar. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and offer reassurances that we continue to work with the necessary authorities to provide opportunities in the future.

The change of date for this event (from Saturday 26 June to Saturday 10 July 2021) will mean there is a long layoff since Lardner Park. Therefore, we will be offering an invitational non-XCR scoring 8km event at Cruden Farm, also on Saturday 10 July 2021, for Open Men and Women, W40, M40 and M50+, in addition to the previously scheduled events, you can view that program here.
If you have purchased an XCR or Max package and wish to participate in the 8km invitational event please email sportdelivery@athsvic.org.au.

Entries for all events will be open from 5.00pm Monday 21 June 2021.
