All Caulfield athletes are encouraged to continue competing and training over winter by signing up to Bayside Cross Country. This is a fabulous way to stay fit especially if your children play winter sport like soccer, football, basketball, lacrosse, netball or want to continue their fitness in preparation for next season.

This season U6-17 CLAC athletes can participate in Bayside Cross Country. All participants need to be LAVic members.

There is an extra $40 fee payable to join Bayside XC and this includes Saturday competitions and Presentation Night Pizza Dinner and Awards. If you have a friend who is interested they will need to pay the $55 LAVic joining fee on top of the $40 Bayside XC fee.

Bayside Cross Country is an amalgamation of Brighton, Caulfield, Mentone, Moorabbin, Oakleigh, Sandringham and Springvale Little Athletic centres. Athletes are covered by their Summer Season 23/24 insurance therefore only a small fee is payable.

Each Saturday competition is from 7:55am-8:10am (walk the course), races starting from 8.15am and has the following events
• U6 – 500m
• U7- 8 – 1km
• U9-10 – 1.5km
• U11-12 – 2km
• U13+ – 3km

It’s usually all over by 10:00am – 10:30am. Athletes come and race in their event and then are free to go home. Once per season you may be asked to do duty for an hour or so.

Cross Country is lots of fun and a great way to keep fit, hang out with your aths friends over winter and make new friends.

All levels of ability are strongly encouraged to participate. Just like track and field, it is all about PBs, having fun and self improvement. In fact, NO one is left behind! It’s the most encouraging and friendly run you could enter.

There is SMR and State Cross Country, Road Relays and Cross Country Relays opportunities to enter as well for U9 to U16. Sorry U6, U7 and U8 cannot enter these events.

Each week we travel to different venues including. Bald HIll Park in Clayton, Braeside Park, Hampton Foreshore and Westgate Park.

Athletes are to run in Caulfield singlet on race day with competition patch. No patch no results this season. Summer Season competition patch is compulsory. Uniforms will be available for purchase at one of our training days. We will notify you when we have new stock of uniforms to sell with a date that the uniform shop will be open.

Bayside Cross Country Hoodies will be available to purchase over the course of the season at the events (and possibly at trainings). Cost of a hoodie is $45. Credit card payment is preferred.
