The Saturday Metro Program (incorporating the Junior League) is for people of all ages and abilities. School age participants, families, and newcomers are particularly welcome. Events are held in bushland, parkland and pine forest venues close to Canberra.
Three to four courses (one of very easy standard, one of easy standard, and two or three of moderate standard) will normally be offered, with lengths ranging typically from 2 to 5 km. While the program is designed to offer juniors the opportunity to run courses suited to their needs, adults are most welcome. Mentors will be present to assist newcomers, both juniors and adults.
A Junior League, based on the results of all events, will be conducted, with competitors being awarded points on placings on their course. The best 12 scores of each competitor will be counted towards age class awards. Juniors are under 21 years old.
