Cross Country (Out of Stadium) Competition with Eastern Suburbs is summed up as a Fun Run every Saturday morning, followed by a cup of coffee with friends.
Eastern Suburbs members participate in the Athletics South Out of Stadium season, which runs from April to September at various locations around the greater Hobart area. They also represent the Club in Tasmanian Cross Country and Road Running Championships (including Marathon/Half Marathon) conducted by Athletics Tasmania across the year.
Cross country has the appeal that the whole family can compete on the same course at the same time, without having to sit around and wait for different age groups. All Saturday morning runs start at 10am, with a nominal weekly entry fee.
Members can be any age from 9 upwards and we are proud to have a number of families who have 2 and even 3 generations competing regularly each Saturday morning.
Take the next step up from just doing the regular Tasmanian Fun Run Calendar, and experience the fun and personal development with encouragement from like minded people on a weekly basis.
Ober the long involvement of Eastern Suburbs in Cross Country, we have been proud to have a large number of athletes representing Tasmania at all distances from Schools and under age Cross Country, to the Australian Marathon/Half marathon Championships, as well as at Masters (Over 30) level at Australian and International level.
But just as importantly, we are immensely proud of our long history of people who proudly wear the red and white in local competitions and fun runs accompanied by a huge smile, regardless of where they finish in the event, and with their personal goals in mind.
