Cross Country attracts participants of all ages and abilities and is conducted in a relaxed manner where runners of state and national standard run along side primary school age athletes and veterans. Handicap races are conducted during the season. These are keenly contested as everyone has a chance of winning a major trophy for the best results over the five races.
