Athletes need to listen for PA Announcements calling for them to make their way to the Call room (Marshalling Pavilion – Jockeys Room).
If an athlete is unsure as to whether their event has been announced they should make their way to the Call Room no later than 20 minutes prior to the advertised start time for their event.
A Starters Marshal will supervise athletes walking to the start line from the Call Room 10 minutes prior to the advertised start time.
The Starter begins each race from the respective start line. NB. There is a different start line for the 2km, 3km & 5km races.
NB. The organisers reserve the right to alter the course. The course is indicated with flags – red on the left & white on the right & check point marshals. Please see the course map in the event in the Event Calendar.
All State events are listed prior to the date of the event in the Event Calendar located on the right hand side panel. Each event will contain the venue, convenor, rules, information, draws/schedule & results. Results can be accessed post event by using the State Results link or by going to the State Event Calendar Section & selecting the date of the event.
Rules: Cross Country - Primary and Secondary
Built on the success of the 2020 Virtual Cross Country event, SSV is delighted to provide this great opportunity again in 2021. Victorian primary and secondary students can take part in any way they would like - they can run or walk.Students can run or walk for a new personal best or for fun and fitness. The main aim is for students to get out and give it a go. Every meter run by a student will earn virtual points for their school. Students will be given the option to submit their performance, but if they wish they also now have the additional option to not have their performance made public. #SSVVXC
