Newcastle Cross Country Club's race at Peace Park in Weston on Saturday, 12 May 2018 is the sixth of a series of races between April and September in the Hunter Region of NSW.
The Peace Park race starts on Cessnock Road, and paved paths wander past ponds and playgrounds, before passing underneath the road and emerging in Chinaman's Hollow, on the other side of the road. Chinaman's Hollow is a well-known historic site, and used to be used as a market garden. Today it's a quiet park with natural swamp areas and ponds.
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.
