Athletics West run a Winter Competition between the months of May and August each year. The competition offers a cross country run and a road walk on alternate Saturdays at various venues across the metropolitan area.
All Little Athletics registered athletes are eligible to compete. There are no extra fees charged as it is included in the registration for the Summer Season. Athletes compete in the same age group they were registered in for the previous summer.
The program commences at 1.00pm with age groups rotating through the time slots each week. The races are a mix of Scratch races and Handicap races based upon times recorded previously during the season. Competitors check in on arrival and then marshal at the start line when their event is called ~15mins before competing. Competitors must wear their registration numbers and age tags on the Cockburn Centre uniform. U7 & U8 athletes may compete in their Club uniform.
To be eligible to compete at the State Championships Competition at the end of the Season, competitors must have competed in a minimum number of runs or walks depending on the number of events held during the season.
