    NSW XC Relays


    NSW Cross Country Relays are upon us. Many clubs from around New South Wales will send their best to Miranda Park on Saturday 1 June 2013.
    Randwick Botany Harriers is traditionally a force to be reckon with in this event. We won multiple titles over the years not only in Open category but also with our junior teams. This year we want to try again.



    Our normal team selection process involves the following steps:
    1. We broadcast email to all club members and compile the list of those interested to compete
    2. Based on coaches input the selectors try to put together the best possible teams, the teams are published on the club's website
    3. Minor changes are always possible on the race day as sometimes inevitable happens and we had runners pulling out on the race day from whatever reason.

    Club will pay an entry fee for every team. If we can't fit someone in any team that runner could still run and individual race (it has to be first leg of the relay).
    NSW Cross Country Relays are organized by Athletics NSW and more information including timetable and course map can be found here.
    Please make sure you run in a proper club uniform, if you need one contact our uniform officer.

    So far (as at 31 May) we have formed the following teams:
