What a way to kick-start the 2022 XCR individual rounds at Bendigo’s very own St Anne’s Winery!

Athletics Bendigo is proud to be the host region for this round of the Athletics Victoria’s 2022 XCR Series.

St Anne’s Bendigo offers sweeping landscapes of stunning views featuring picturesque wetlands, ancient River Red Gums and vineyards. This is a runner’s paradise.

Forecast total event participation numbers between 500 – 700 participants, with up to 55 athletes representing the Bendigo region.

As part of some extra goodies, there’ll be two on-course STRAVA segments for athletes to aim to set their fastest times.
