Uniform Requirements

All athletes competing at cross country must wear their registration patch.

Any athlete not wearing a registration patch will not be permitted to start.
Please do not head to the start line without your patch. You will be sent away and not permitted to run.

This is a requirement of Little Athletics Victoria to ensure that all athletes are insured when competing. If you are a trialing athlete you will be given a patch to wear on the day.
