Queensland Cross Country Championships

Queensland Athletics extends an invitation to all distance runners to participate in the 2017 Queensland Cross Country Championships on Saturday 29th July.

After a successful event last year, the Championships will again be staged at the excellent cross country course at the Maleny Golf Club. Maleny is a small, scenic town 90km north of Brisbane, overlooking the Sunshine Coast hinterland. The spectator friendly and popular course has been a feature of the Sunshine Coast Cross Country Series for the last few years.

All runners aged 6 and up, of all abilities, are encouraged to compete. There are no qualifying standards – everyone is welcome.

The competition is also the final selection trial for the State Cross Country Team (U14 - Open & Multi-class).

The Cross Country Cup is a point score competition for Queensland Athletics clubs, used to determine the champion club for the season.

QA club members earn points for their club each time they participate in point scoring events during the season. After each event, the points earned by club members will be tallied to determine the club places for the event, and the club points for the leader board.
