AV XCR 5 and Victorian All Schools XC Championship at Bundoora Park

Mel Douglass

The next AV XCR event is at Bundoora Park on Saturday 15th June. This bumper day of cross country racing incorporates the Victorian All Schools Cross Country Championships and also serves as the selection trial for the Australian Cross Country Championships. Both the men and women races cover 10km of the gruelling slopes of Bundoora Park, while juniors race over 3km, 4km, 6km or 8km. A good course for Cross Country spikes if you have some as it could be a mud slide!

Anyone interested in running in the AV XCR event should contact UNI’s VP Nigel Preston so transport and buses can be arranged if needed. The ladies team for Bendigo Region would also welcome any new runners. Athletes competing in this event will be confirmed later in the week.

Good luck to all our UNI AV runners and all our junior runners who have qualified for the State All Schools Cross Country.
