The second round of the XCR’15 season will be held on the testing hills of Lardner Park (between Drouin and Warragul) on this Saturday, May 9.

To compete in this event you must enter via the AV website or better yet purchase a series ticket which enters you for all the individual events for this season.

Entries Close at 12:00 noon on Wednesday. No late entries will be accepted. If you have not yet entered (or purchased a series ticket), enter now!

Series tickets cost:

Open and Overage: $95 for six races

Under 20: $75 for five races

Under 18: $60 for four races

Under 16: $50 for four races

Under 14: $50 for four races

We need all available athletes competing in this event to give us the best chance of having a successful winter season.


The XCR’15 season is underway. We are hoping to have a record number of athletes competing for Box Hill this winter season.

With 56 athletes and a high number of juniors competing in round 1 at Jells Park, this season is looking promising (despite a number of our open men being unavailable for the first event)
