Winter Cross Country 2020

Well it has been a Winter XC and Distance season like no one would ever want to have again but through good hygiene practices and good fortune, we are about to commence the 2020 Cross Country season (albeit condensed). For these cross country events to occur Queensland Athletics (QA) have had to make a number of changes to ensure we all meet our Covid-19 compliance requirements set down by the Outdoor Sports Industry Covid Safe Plan. These rules and practices are here so that we all stay safe and can continue with our athletic pursuits.

The 2020 Cross Country season will consist:

  • 4 races in the Brisbane series

  • 2 All-Schools events

  • 1 State XC Championship

from August through to September.  Yes, it is going to be crazy 5 or 6 weeks.

As things are quite different this year, I have listed what you need to do. Please check those items that apply to you or your family members;

  • If you are already a QA member this season with Toowong Harriers and have competed, you will need to do nothing until the 2019/20 season rolls over, on the 1st October 2020. You are ready to nominate for events.

  • If you are already a QA member this season with Toowong Harriers and have not competed, you must get a temporary bib sent out for the remaining events of the year. This can be done by logging in to QA and requesting a new bib which ust be done 7 days prior to the event. The link is https://www.revolutionise.com.au/qldathletics/product/14521/

  • If you are a current QA member but unaffiliated with Toowong Harriers or another club, we can transfer you QA affiliation across to Toowong Harriers. This must be down prior to registering for events. Please email me at president@toowongharriers.org.au with your QA/National Athletic ID.# and I will arrange a transfer.

  • If you are not a current member of QA but would like to join for the XC season.  New members whom register for Base QA and Club membership for the shortened Winter XC season from July 2020 will benefit from their membership being carried through till the end of the 2020/21 season. This 15 month special only applies to new Base members only. Please click the 'QA Registration' button to go to our Queensland Athletics/Toowong Harriers Club portal on Revolutionise Sport .  For new and existing club members who chose to compete in both the Queensland Athletics (QA) and Little Athletics Queensland (LAQ) competitions for the club, you will only be charged one club membership fee of $35. 

Once all these things are in order you can register for XC events via the QA website.

I will also update all of the events on the RevSport Club Portal pages.

 

Key requirements from the Covid Safe Plan for these events;

  • All those attending, including spectators, parents and officials, must preregister for the event, preferably via the Queensland Athletics Revsport system.

  • All competitors must be members of QA which is required for insurance, so that we can provide a season bib and to ensure all have agreed to share contact information. Base membership is only $12.

  • No entry on the day.  QA intends to provide members with a season bib which will ensure no checking or bib pick up will be required at events

 

As always, if you have any problems or question please do not hesitate to contact me at president@toowongharriers.org.au.
