The Western Metropolitan area hosts a weekly
cross country competition that caters for
athletes of all ages and ability.

It particularly suits Primary School and High School
students who enjoy practising for school, area or
regional carnivals, as well as adults who enjoy keeping
fit or perhaps practising for the City to Surf.

The three events each week cater for
short distance cross country (2km),
middle distance cross country (4-
5km) and longer distance cross
country (8-10km).

The events are primarily held in the
Western Sydney area and usually within a 30 minute
drive from Kings Langley.

                  The races commence at 2.00 p.m.
                  (short distance), 2.20 p.m. (middle)
                  and 3.00 p.m. (long).
