Northern Region – Virtual Cross Country Event

At this time of year, the College would normally be conducting our Interhouse Cross Country event leading to the Northern Region Cross Country trials.  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Northern Region School Sport are unable to offer this event in 2020.  To provide students with an opportunity to compete, they are conducting a Virtual Cross Country.

Students are invited to nominate for an event, record their time using any device: Garmin/Fitbit/mobile phone app and submit their result via a screenshot. Distances can be run on any surface. Students can submit multiple times and their best time will be used to determine the winners. 

Participating students are to email the attached Nomination Form and the screenshot of their results to: admin.northernsport@qed.qld.gov.au by 2 June.  The top three students in each event will be emailed a certificate, through their school, acknowledging their achievement.

Please direct any questions in relation to this event to our Head of Faculty – HPE & Sport, Mr Williams via sport@stpatscollege.qld.edu.au.
