Diocesan Cross Country results 2022

Our youngest runners won the team events against all other competition in the 8, 9 and 10 age groups!

The Primary Diocesan Cross Country was held at Maitland Park during the second week of Term 2. Over 600 students raced vying for a place in the top eight for their age division. It was a great carnival atmosphere with schools cheering each other on and encouraging runners to finish the race.

The Secondary Cross Country was again hosted by St Joseph’s Aberdeen at the scenic Lake Glenbawn. There were some course changes this year to add to the challenging course. The top 6 in each age division represented the Diocese at Sydney Motor Park last week.
