The Short Course Cross Country racing was tight and muddy, with the elite men's race seeing Dylan Cooper (Canberra) improve his third placing in Saturday's Olympic Cross Country event to take a convincing win. Second was Ben Mather (Tasmania) and third was Neil Van der Ploeg (Victoria).

The elite women's racing was tight and muddy with the lead changing several times in the women's race. Zoe King (New South Wales) and yesterday's winner Rowena Fry (Tasmania) fought it out over the 20 minute race. A surge in the final laps was enough to secure Fry her second win of the weekend. King claimed second with Katherine O'Shea (Victoria) in third.
