Cross Country Saturday 28th May

What a start to the day – conditions on entry to the reserve at cockatoo was fogged in and I think a lot of runners were just shivering at the sight even before getting out of the cars!!

The course proved to be new and exciting with conditions such as well- fun hills, mud, puddles, creek crossings, logs and slippery forest trails.

Hi CLAC families,

Again was another good turnout at the Margaret Lewis reserve in Coldstream. The morning looked a bit fresh but the weather became sunny and was perfect for running. There were many PB’S again so congratulations again to you all as the course is quite challenging. Next week is round 7 and we are back at Morrison reserve with warm ups starting at 8.45am.

Now as mentioned in our weekly talks we have put on a special event the following week out at cockatoo. This will take place out at Cockatoo little athletics club at mountain recreation reserve on mountain road cockatoo. Please allow roughly 40-45mins to get there and it is the same start up time as usual with warm ups beginning at 8.45am. There will be a BBQ and drinks available so please get along as it will be a great and enjoyable day for all out there and it would be fantastic for all the outer eastern clubs being together.

Here are the weekend’s results, great effort everyone:
