Share this article

Dear Members,

It has been great to see over 70 athletes competing for Camberwell Malvern across the first two weeks of cross country season on some lovely autumn mornings. Below are some details on upcoming events.

No cross country meet this weekend, but training on Wednesday
There will be no event this Sunday May 12th and competition will resume on May 19th.  There is training as normal on Wednesday, May 8th from 4.45pm to 6pm at McAlpine Oval in Kooyong.

State cross country relays
The 2024 State Cross-Country Relay Championships are being held at Cruden Farm in Langwarrin on Saturday 8th June, 2024. If your child is interested in joining a team, please register your interest here.

This is a team event – where 3 athletes complete a relay over a cross-country course. The distances are less than the individual distances to allow greater flexibility and formation of teams. Athletes do not carry a baton, they start and finish within a transition zone.

Entries for this event close Monday, 20th May 2024 at 11:00 a.m. and Camberwell Malvern will need to formalise teams a week prior, so please register your interest by Monday, May 13th.  Please note that this is for athletes in the Age Groups: U9 – U17 only

  • U9 & U10: 3 x 1km
  • U11 & U12: 3 x 1.5km
  • U13, U14, U15, U16 & U17: 3 x 2km (2 laps of 1km)

Camberwell Malvern hosted XC event Sunday, May 19th
Camberwell Malvern will be holding our host event on Sunday, May 19th at Orchard Grove, Blackburn South. We hope to see as many of our members there as possible to fly the blue and red colours.  Please see the attached flyer for more details.

Please note if your children are competing in this event it would be greatly appreciated if you could sign-up to help out with some brief duties on the day.  Please use this attached link to select a time.

Winter Cross Country Program details
Lastly, a remidner your current membership includes access for Camberwell Malvern members to compete in the Eastern 7’s Cross Country program every Sunday morning and LAVIC events.  Each week follows a similar timetable and we recommend arriving 30 minutes before your event.  Simply arrive with your child’s registration bib / barcode & uniform and wait for the age-group to be called.

We ask all members to arrange any uniform orders or barcode / bib requests during the week.  The club contact person will then arrange for them to be picked up or delivered. Winter is a great time to order the club hoodies!  Please use the online shop for any uniform orders.
