Barefoot Runners

15 June 2009 9:05am

It is recommended that runners wear spikes if at all possible. There are sections of the course with gravel and prickles that make it not particularly suitable for bare feet. However, team managers of runners intending to compete barefooted can exchange their athletes transponders designed for shoe attachment for ones attached to ankle straps when they pick up their managers packs. It would be appreciated if we could be pre-warned as to which athletes want to compete barefooted so that we can begin the process of allocating the transponders before race day. Managers are asked to email the names of athletes requiring ankle straps to oe@nzssaa.org.nz as soon as possible please.

Timing System for Cross Country Championships

7 June 2009 8:35pm

This year we will be using an electronic timing system for recording times and placings rather than the finish shute and place disks system used in the past. There will be a video backup in the unlikely event of a timing failure. However, in order to have a time and place recorded every runner must wear the timing tag issued to them and attached by one of the methods as shown in the document below. The timing tags will come with full instructions in the managers packs.
