The Southern Metro Region Cross Country Championships is taking place at Ballam Park, Frankston on the 24th of June 2017. This event is open to all registered athlete (not just Cross Country) and while this is an indivdual event, awards are also given for teams. A team comprises the first 3 Caulfield athletes over the line on the day per event. Lets try to get as many teams as we can. Caulfield have done very well at both regional and state cross country in previous years and I’m looking forward to a strong turnout from Caulfield again this year.
