2020 KZNA Cross-Country Season

The 2020 KZNA cross-country season is almost here! The program and event details have been confirmed and we are ready for an exciting season in waiting. We have a bumper 2020 season with the parlauf event kicking off proceedings on FRIDAY the 6th of March at the Westville clubhouse. That is followed by 16 league events spread across the KZN province, so you do not have an excuse for taking part. The KZN season will reach a climax on the 1st of August with the provincial championships schedule to take place at Hutchisonpark in Amanzimtoti on the 1st of August. And there is more! The highlight will be the SA cross-country championships which will also be hosted at Hutchisonpark on Saturday 5 SEPTEMBER 2020!

The cross-country events are open to ANYONE wishing to participate. If you want to try-out an event and do not belong to a KZNA affiliated club or do not have a 2020 permanent license yet, you can purchase a temporary license (R35) at the venue. We strongly advise athletes to join a club as entry into the KZNA champs will require a permanent license number.

Entry fees will be (1) FREE for the first race, (2) R15.00 for age groups 9 – 19 years and (3) R20.00 for seniors and masters. Entries will be taken on race day and are normally taken from about an hour before the start of the first race.

Except for the parlauf event and the KZNA & SA champs events, all the leagues will follow the SAME program. There will be 8 races at each event and starts at 11H50 with race 1 and finishes with the start of the SENIORS race (race 8) at 15H15

If your 2020 goal is to be selected for the KZNA team to participate at the SA champs on 5 September you HAVE to participate at the KZNA champs on 1 August as this will be the selection event. There will be no minimum league requirements, but we advise league participation as results will guide selectors on who to follow for possible selection.

We hope to see you all in NUMBERS at the league events! For any enquiries about the cross-country season kindly contact Jabulani Mhlungu at the KZNA office at 031 312 9374 or via email jabulani.m@kznathletics.co.za
