What is Cross Country

Cross Country is a sport which an individual participates in an event over natural terrain. Cross Country courses vary in distance, terrain and landscape depending on the location.

The Little Athletics Cross Country season traditionally runs from April through to August following the Track and Field season (Oct-March). Competition can vary from Centre to Centre. Albury does not run a Cross Country Season however our athletes do participate in Cross Country Open Days held by other centres and Northern Country Region Cross Country Championships.

Cross Country Distances

Unlike Track events, Cross Country distances can vary from course to course.
