Running Cross Country is a great way to maintain your fitness over winter. The Cross Country season starts in April and runs through to July/August.
Saturday Cross Country events are run by Bayside Cross Country and Seaford Little Athletics, and are open to all U6-U16 Athletes. Unfortunately parents will not be allowed to run this season due to COVID restrictions.
In addition to the regular Saturday competitions, LAVic are running 3 State XC events this season - Cross Country Relays, Cross Country Road Relays and Cross Country State Championships (with Regional Championships beforehand). All U9-U16 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 and Road 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try to help.
Mentone is affiliated with both Bayside Cross Country and Seaford Cross Country for regular Saturday morning XC sessions:
