Over the winter months the Deakin Athletic club competes under the banner of the Geelong Region Cross Country Team in the Athletics Victoria Cross Country and Road Racing (XCR) events.

XCR is a 10 race series from April to September each year, that caters for all ages and all abilities.

Races vary in distance from the 3.827km lap of the Tan to the Burnley Half Marathon and are held at different locations throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria.

Whilst it can appear from a distance to cater mainly for the elite, the vast majority of runners participate on a very recreational level and enjoy the motivating team environment present at each and every race.
