Cross Country is a great way for athletes to keep fit in the off season. It also provides a great warm up or training run for other sports as well as the opportunity to meet with their friends from Little Athletics.
To add to the fun, parents are invited to join in! Parents can either run with their child or on their own, they can take it seriously (run for a PB) or simply enjoy a run around Ballam Park with friends - either way it's fun for the whole family.
For parents not running, relax and enjoy a coffee with the paper while the kids enjoy catching up with friends and keeping fit!
Cross Country is a fun way for parents and children to start the weekend whilst keeping fit at the same time.
