Well what a Cross-Country Season its been for 2020!!!!…… Who would have thought a world pandemic would occur and cause so much disruption and uncertainty!!!

But we managed to pull together a mini season of Cross-Country where many PB’s where achieved and lots of fun was had.

A HUGE thank you to all our volunteers!!! We could not have done it without you… It takes a tribe to build a club and we certainly have so many helpers that have a passion for cross country. With all this help we are able to provide you young ones and the older ones with the opportunity to run, walk, stroll through our amazing Albany Cross-Country venues.

Well done to all members and participants you should be very proud of yourselves for getting out there, pushing your selves and achieving you personal goals.
