Handicap Day at Marg Lewis Reserve

Hi CLAC Families,

The cross country season continued down at Coldstream for the Yarra Ranges handicap day.

We had blue skies as we headed to the course but the wind was still cold and the course itself was quite water logged from all the recent rain. The handicap system gave everybody an even chance of finishing first in their age group. A big thank you to the Yarra Ranges team for crunching all the times to give every athlete a chance of victory.

Cross Country

Hello again CLAC families,

Well with the season winding down now just a reminder that this Saturday is handicap day and it is being held at Marg Lewis reserve at Coldstream. Just a reminder that you need to have run at least 5 times this season in your age/distance to be eligible. Warm Ups start at 8.45am.

This week was a big week and what our athletes had been working toward all season. On Saturday it was the State Cross Country Championships and it was held at Cruden Farm at Langwarrin. This historical site brought out the most challenging running conditions. There was icy wind, mud and not to mention cow patties!!

Our Athletes were fantastic and did our club proud. I was honoured to watch outstanding efforts that you all should be extremely delighted with.  Here are the results:

Thank you once again to all the parents out at the meet with you all helping out and doing such a marvellous job things went tremendously smoothly.
