Offered throughout the year and including the Cross Country team, athletics is one of the dominant sports of St Patrick’s College which has a fine and proud record in BAS competitions.

These competitions include the Road Relay, Cross Country and Lap of the Lake.

Students also have the opportunity to match it against fellow students at the annual St Patrick’s College Whole School Athletics Carnival, competing in numerous disciplines including the long jump, high jump and sprints. This carnival is then followed by the BAS Athletics Carnival held at Llanberris, which sees the best-of-the-best from Ballarat Schools compete against each other.
