About The Event

Barnes Cross Country

The Barnes Cross Country Races are handicap races for both Community & Club Members.

The race honours the memory of Sir James Barnes, who was the Mayor of Dunedin for three terms from 1968 to 1977.

Barnes, who won the New Zealand senior men's cross-country title in 1932 and the mile in 1933, did not think there were enough races in the cross-country season and donated a cup for the race in the early 1950s.

Participants aged 16 and up can choose either a 3.75km run, a 3.75km Walk or a 5km Run

Under 16 (aged 14 & 15) & Under 14 (aged 12 & 13) participants run 2.50km

Under 12 (aged 8 to 11) participants run 1.25km

There is a fun run for Under 8 participants. Entries are taken on the day for this fun run event

Competition Numbers/Bibs will be provided on the day.
