Short XC - Toby Schreier Cup

Saturday, 6 May 2017 | Athletics South Australia



On Saturday May 6, Athletics SA clubs will race in honour of Toby Schreier at the Running SA Short Distance Cross Country Championships. 

Clubs will challenge for the Toby Schreier Cup proudly donated by the Flinders Athletic Club.

It's set to be a big night of cross country action under lights at Flinders Uni incorporating Little Athletics races at the beginning of the night. The event is the first of eight events within the Athletics SA Winter Premiership Series which includes a mix of Cross Country, Road and Relays.

The event is also a State Championship, with the first 3 placegetters receiving championship medals.

The point scoring system has been refined this season to bring the competition closer together from race to race. You can learn more on our Winter Hub by clicking the 'Rules' document.

Point Scoring for the Toby Schreier Cup:

  • ASA Registered participants will earn points for their club based on their placing in the category they have entered in.
  • Points will be allocated down to 9th place and there after each participant will earn 1 point
  • The winner will also be awarded 1 additional point.
  • If the race contains less than 9 participants, points will then be allocated based on the final placegetter receiving 1 point,  and every participant who finishes ahead shall receive 1 more point than the placing behind them.
  • At the conclusion of the event, all individual points will be tallied up per club and a winner will be determined.
