ACS Cross Country Update:
It was a great day of athleticism and camaraderie at Bundoora Park and whilst quite cool, the rain held off until the very end.
Whilst we wait on the final team results to come through; for those runners that wish to check their time, please click on the link below for Tomato Timing Race Results. You’ll just need to know your race bib number to check your finishing time and place. Well done to all runners.
2019 ACS Cross Country Championships
Friday 16 August 2019
10.00 am – 1.30 pm
Bundoora Park, Plenty Road, Bundoora
Please join us for the 2019 ACS Cross Country Championships – race times are listed below. This is a much loved event with loads of atmosphere and runners from all schools coming together to celebrate the best of the best in ACS. Come and cheer on your family and friends as schools compete for the honour of ACS Champions.
In 2018, Westbourne (picture above) won the The J.O. Kennedy Aggregate Trophy and the The Wendy Adams Aggregate Girls Trophy, with St Leonard’s picking up the The Keith Routley Boys Aggregate Trophy. St Michael’s was certainly in the mix overall along with Loyola’s Year 10’s who are looking to defend their year level win from 2018. We’ve seen great results from Overnewton and Beaconhills in the past and Thomas Carr have some outstanding athletes that with a bit more depth could really improve their position. The key to cross country team success is depth; with all runners needing to finish with their very best performances for their school. This gives each team every opportunity to accrue as few raw points as possible and see how they have improved from 2018.
Good luck to all teams on what is a challenging but fun Bundoora Park course.
