The 2019 Central Coast Cross Country season is starting on Saturday March 30th at Pioneer Dairy, off South Tacoma road. Setting up the race shortly after 12midday the first (short distance) event starts at 14.30. The preliminary program is now available and has more than 22 races at 21 different locations including new venues and a team run. Twenty two runs are timed during the season for the overall age/gender/distance competition.

Each Saturday CCXC run is organised along three different loop tracks in two waves at a specific venue (see table below). The first wave is the shortest track (typically 2 km) and normally starts at 14.30. The second wave is a combined start of the medium (4 km) and long track (6 km) and starts shortly after the first wave has finished. This provides the opportunity to either do a warm-up run before starting the medium/long or to run up with family members that run the short track. Each track is clearly marked and where needed volunteers are posting along the track to give directions

As part of your registration you will also receive a new shoe tag that will not only time your weekly challenge for the overall division/age competition but also helps generating your personal report as (optional) emailed to you after each race. The new tag has a specific 4-digit number Nxxx, starting either with 2 for short, 4 for medium and 6 for long distances and makes it possible to flush tags finishing on the wrong distance. This makes processing of the results faster and more efficient. A second personal tag with another first number can be purchased at an additional $5 for the season and includes email reporting but is excluded from that distance point score. Season pass registration will be possible until May 26, so you can miss out on a few runs (but miss some competition points).

How do I know that I have successfully signed up?
You will receive 2 emails from Register Now. One will be a confirmation of all of your registration details and the other will have your tax invoice attached.

Can I still use my tag from last year?

No. New tags are available with other numbering and are already registered in the timing system. False finishes (read tags registered to other distances) will be flushed by default making the processing of the results faster and more efficient. The aim is to get the results processed directly after your finish. Of course the point score can only be done after the last finisher and the quality checks. Please hand in your old tag as these will be reprogrammed and reused in future.

Can I run two distances, each with a registered time,  so a 2K with 4K or a 2K with 6K?

Yes. However only on two tags as each tag is designated to a specific distance. Your tag starts with a 2, 4 or a 6, depending on its assigned distance. Finishing a 2K run with a 4K tag will be flushed by the timing system. An additional tag can be purchased for $5 and is reserved on your name the whole season. Only your first, initial choice of distance/tag is eligible for your point score. You can wear both tags during the race(s), but not on top of each other risking detection problems..(one on each shoe). 

Can I save my registration part way through and come back it later?

Yes. By using your password you can choose to save it and come back later. After payment you can only change the contact details and distance category. This option closes on March 30th, 2 hours before start of the first race.

Will the on-line registration close by a certain date?

It is open indefinitely at this stage. As the season progresses, we will get less people signing up but it will still be open for those who want to use it. At the registration desk one has electronic registration as well, paper forms are no longer used.

Can I use School Vouchers to pay for the junior registration?

Also this year CCXC has requested approval for becoming an Active Kids Program (School Voucher) provider https://sport.nsw.gov.au/sectordevelopment/activekids.
In the CCXC registration through RegisterNow you will be able to tick a box if you would like to make use of the voucher for refunding the junior season fees. When formally approved as an Active Kids Program provider we will contact you and start the process.
What if I want to pay by credit card on registration day?

We will have laptops available on registration day that will have internet access for you to use to sign on but there usually is a queue. In order to prevent transcription errors and incomplete information it is the plan to ban paper (also more environmental friendly). In remote areas we will use a PDF form on a laptop.
