Results 2023

Well done to our Year 5 and 6 runners for securing second place in the Primary Aggregate shield with a fantastic performance. The Year 6 age group won their division, while the Year 5’s finished 5th. 

Well done to our Senior runners from Years 7-12 who placed 5th Overall.

Congratulations to the team of runners and to their coaches.


We encourage as many students as possible to participate in order to gain personal fitness and/or to represent Villanova College at the annual AIC Cross Country Championships. The benefits of this program will certainly help students in other sporting areas as well as improving their own general well-being. Most Cross Country training sessions are scheduled around rugby and football so boys can do both. We encourage all students to get involved!

Please direct any questions or concerns to our AIC Cross Country Coordinator – Mr Brian Pascoe, email:

Cross-Country training in Term 1 is on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 6:45-8am. Senior students meet outside Goold Hall, Junior school students meet in the Agora area underneath STV building, prior to moving down to Little Langlands.

Training in Term 2 is on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, same times and locations as above.

Visit the Locker Room Overview Page for the Term by Term training schedules.

AIC Cross Country is open to all students at Villanova. The cross country season culminates each year with the running of the AIC Cross Country Championships held at Curlew Park, Shorncliffe during Term 2.

The cross country preseason program commences Term 1 and is viewed as a strong complement to all other sports in the school, providing each individual athlete with a strong aerobic fitness base. The training program is designed and run by highly qualified coaches.

Our coaches offer three sessions a week throughout the season, which are held at Little Langlands Park located across the road from Villanova College. A number of cross country meets are held in the lead up to the official AIC competition in order to give runners race experience and to assist the coaches with team selections.

Villanova has produced many elite cross country runners through the program who have gone on to enjoy great success at state and national levels.

The AIC Cross Country Championship is contested using a team format. A maximum of 12 runners in each age division are eligible to compete from each school, with the fastest six runners earning points for their school. The distances run vary depending on your age level, not year level:

Year 5 – 2km

Year 6 – 3km

12 years (from Year 7 only) – 3km

13 years – 3km

14 years – 4km

15 years – 4km

16 years – 6km

Open – 6km

During the season, additional information such training times, team lists, staff, schedules and results is available on the College website.
