The meet was still well participated and went ahead as scheduled.
Thank you to all Heads of Sport and staff from our member colleges who assisted with the smooth running of this meet.
Thank you to the student competitors and parents for coming out and supporting us in such poor conditions.

2022 Cross Country Start Line

Schools are allowed to have three students on the start line and the rest of the team is to line up behind those students.  In the event there is more room on the start line (i.e. senior races) it will be at the start official’s discretion as to how many students will be allowed to line up on the start line. These places will be rotated each year.
All competitors are to remain in finishing order at the finish line.


Placing’s in team events are decided by totalling
a. The first 6 competitors from each school in the Junior events;
b. The first 6 competitors from each school in the Intermediate events and

These placing’s are totalled and the school with the lowest total is the winner.
In the event of a tie, the team whose last scoring member finished closest to the winner takes precedence. If a school fails to have the full number of runners in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior events complete the course, then the school shall be awarded the place/s after the final runner has completed the course.
