2022 Westlake Girls Distance Running 

If you are not afraid of a little bit of dirt and mud, and enjoy getting out amongst nature, then Cross Country might be the sport for you!  The Cross-Country season runs from April through to August and involves challenging races of various distances over public parks, reserves and sometimes even farms.  Westlake Girls also competes in Road Race which varies in distances from 3 km through to 10 km on both the regional and national platform.  

At Westlake Girls, we also offer students the opportunity to improve their own personal goals with the Distance Running Squad or Running Club with Amanda Holyer.  It  focuses on developing technique and improving the runner’s fitness with weekly sessions which begin at the start of each term and run for 6 weeks with Coach.

If you are interested in Distance Running and would like to join the Running Club or would like to be notified about upcoming Cross Country or Road Race events then please complete the registration form found when you click on the Tab to the Right – 2022 Running Registrations
