The 2017 Launceston State Schools Sports Association Cross Country Carnival will be held on Friday, June 9, at Waverley Primary School.

The cross-country carnival features the best distance runners from the primary schools of Launceston competing against each other as well representing their schools in a team’s event.

The highest four place getters from each school will be recorded giving an overall school victory in Division A, Division B and Division C school categories.

The respective divisional cross country races will be held with division C kicking off from 9.30-11am.

That will be followed by division B from 11.15-12:30pm and division A from 12.55-2.10pm, with presentations to be held following each event.

The LSSSA cross-country carnival will be postponed by 8.30am on the day if the weather is not suitable.

An alternative date will be used as a backup on Friday, June 16.
