Newcastle Cross Country Kitchener Handicap
Newcastle Cross Country Club's Kitchener Handicap race at The Poppethead Reserve, about 5km south of Kitchener, is one of a series of races between April and August in the Hunter Region of NSW.
You do need to be a club member to participate in these events; membership is open to anyone subject to completing an application form and paying a fairly minimal registration fee. Either join online beforehand or on race day for a slightly higher fee.
Located 5km south of Cessnock are the remains of Aberdare Central Colliery, now known as "Kitchener Poppet Head". This run commences in the picnic area and continues out along the fire trails on a sandy dirt road.
