Kembla Joggers

Venue for Hire:

Cross Country Running Park

The Kembla Joggers Cross-Country Park is a purpose built venue catering for cross-country running events and other fitness activities such as walking and general training. The venue provides a variety of trails of different lengths and a fantastic clubhouse facility on the site. The park is used for club events and is also available for school and regional cross-country carnivals, state and national championship events and events run by other sporting organisations.

The park was fully opened in August 2010 after significant funding from the federal government in addition to funding from the state government,
Wollongong City Council and club fundraising efforts, all combined totalling $1.7 million.


The cross-country trails are all grassed and are professionally maintained year round to national championship standards. Trail lengths of 1km, 2km, 2.5km, 3km and 4km are available as single loops. Longer distances are easily achievable by multiple loops of any combination. The courses are fully contained and well defined therefore requiring minimal marshalling or supervision during events.
