      3-hour drive? Maybe . . . unless, of course, it'll be streamed, which it will be, so you can actually see more of it.

        It's a good spectator course, at least as spectators have previously been able to access it, jogging back and forth inside the main loop.

        Will see if that lasts.

          Speaking of XC, is the championship still happening next year?

              A LOT will have to change with Aussie border restrictions for WXC to go ahead in Feb. Doubt athletics has as much pull as tennis (or Hollywood stars) on getting exemptions from current two week hotel quarantine requirements.

                My thought as well. Given the extremely stringent requirements, i will not be surprised if it is cancelled.

                  I was thinking we could all just bunk with you! Maybe set up a tent city in the yard, like an old guy's version of Woodstock XC.

                    I'm just under 4 hours away so I can pick up the riff raff assuming you get along with snakes a lizards (and I'm talking inside our house).

                      Postponed to 2023 as per Athletics Australia's twitter account.

                        You're welcome to bunk with my snakes, lizards, raccoons, possums. We abut a section of woods and have a stream of 'interesting' fauna parading through all the time.

                          A wise move....

                          @WorldAthletics
                          & the Local Organising Committee for the World Athletics Cross Country Championships Bathurst 2022 have agreed to postpone the championships to Saturday, 18 February, 2023.

                            Outside our house? Gators in the pond right next to us. Bobcat(s) in the conservation area next to the pond and all sorts of fun loving venomous snakes. Inside the house we have non venomous snakes and lizards. If you're a dog or cat lover (bobcats aside), your out of luck.
