Our Cross Country Program has just commenced (not too late to become a member!). Ballarat Harriers has a reputation for providing some of the most challenging, varied and exciting cross country racing not only in Ballarat, but also Victoria.

Why? Our program of weekly races takes full advantage of the natural beauty of the region – forests, creek trails, lakes, mountains, and parkland – all within 20 minutes of town.
