Students come from across the region to Deakin University in Warrnambool on Monday to compete in the School Sport Victoria district cross country.
Plenty of determination was shown as the young athletes ignored the winter weather to fly around the scenic course in front of a big crowd of family and friends.
The Standard photographer Anthony Brady was there to capture the action.
