HDLAC Cross Country
HDLAC Cross Country: Sunday 14th April. 3pm meet for a group warm up and course walk. 3:30pm start for all ages. All are welcome – registered and non-registered runners plus parents. Age recommendation is U9 and older, but younger children are welcome to participate.
Location: For the first HDLAC XC, we will meet at the trail entrance as per map below. Venue may change for the second event – watch this space for updates.
Toilets: There are toilets at the carpark as indicated on the map, but no closer toilets to the trail, so keep this in mind upon arrival.
Parking: Off-road parking is available at the trail entrance, or in the various car parks (depending on other sports on at the same time, this can be busy so leave plenty of time to arrive.)
Course and Distance:
<U9 – there is a 500m forest trail lap for younger children.
U9-U10: Distance 2km. Course is one 500m forest trail loop, followed by 750m out and back (1.5km total) along the fire trail.
U11+ Distance 3km. Course is two 500m forest trail loops, followed by 1km out and back (2km total) along the fire trail.
The terrain is bumpy, potentially boggy, and has lots of hazards. Athletes need to adjust their pace and running to cater for this and run with care. This is cross country. The course is mostly flat, but has a small incline over the final 1km of each course and pacing is important.
Marshall’s will be at all key directional points. Markers will be visible along the course and a sweeper will run at the rear of the group to assist anyone struggling. Radios will be used to communicate between the starter and marshal’s in case any assistance is required.
Results: Results HQ for registered athletes along with this Full Results List which includes non registered athletes.
