Cross Country Season

Running Cross Country is a great way to maintain your fitness over winter.  The Cross Country season starts in April and runs through to early August.

Please keep your chest patches from the summer season - they're needed for Cross Country.

Our Cross Country Coordinator for Season 2024 is Sophie or 043 325 38 06

Saturday Cross Country events are run by Bayside Cross Country and Seaford Little Athletics, and are open to all U6-U17 Athletes.  

In addition to the regular Saturday competitions, there will be 3 LAVic XC events this season - State Cross Country Relays, Region Cross Country Carnivals and State Cross Country Championships.  All U9-U17 Mentone members from the previous season are eligible to participate in LAVic/Regional Cross Country events - you don't actually have to be registered for the Cross Country season to enter these special events.

Cross Country Relays are run in teams of 3 runners.  If your child is interested but you're not sure how to get a team together, please contact Sophie or and we'll try to help.

Mentone is affiliated with both Bayside Cross Country and Seaford Cross Country for regular Saturday morning XC sessions: - registrations are open now. First round: 27. April - contact

Your summer Little Aths membership covers part of the cost of the following Winter's regular Saturday morning Cross Country sessions.
