Welcome to Pakenham Little Athletics

PLAC Cross Country


What is Cross Country?

Cross Country (XC) is our Winter Athletics season.  It is family orientated and we encourage all members of the family to participate.

It's not just how fast you run, it's how much you can improve.  Each Saturday we run cross country (rain, hail or shine). We have 3 courses that we run over the season at Lillypond house.
