Heats Now Required

2 December 2006 10:45pm

Entries in the middle distance events are at their highest levels for a number of years, particularly for Senior Boys. As a result it will be necessary to run heats in both the Open Boys 2000m Steeple Chase and in the Senior Boys 3000m which have not been required for some years. These heats will occur in the Saturday afternoon and Saturday Evening Sessions. Please check the timed programme, which will be available on the website early on Monday, for the placement of these heats.

Individuals who are currently entered in both of these events or combinations of 800m or 1500m with them should take this into account when making final decisions prior to Wednesday’s scratchings deadline.

Sprinters should also take note that a quarter finals round will be needed in all 200m grades except the Senior Girls at this stage.

Close of Entries

30 November 2006 4:05pm

As the close of entries was initially published in Newsletter One as Monday 4 December and then amended in Newsletter Two, we will apply the original date and close at Midnight Monday 4 December. It will still be possible to purchase t-shirts until scratchings close on Wednesday night.

Reminder About Scratchings

30 November 2006 11:12am

Athletes and Team managers are reminded of the need to scratch from any events they do not intend to take part in before midnight on Wednesday 6 December. After that time only scratchings from all events will be accepted.

This rule does not apply to the Road Races and schools are allowed to substitute for athletes who make track finals on Sunday without cost, provided these substitutions are submitted to the TIC as soon as possible after the completion of any 3000m heats required on Saturday evening.

The relevant parts of IAAF Rule 142.4 are attached with annotations in red.

Implement Weights and Short Hurdle Specs

There has been ongoing debate in the last few years concerning the lack of a unified standard for Throwing Implements and Short Hurdle Specifications between the various Associations in New Zealand for Age Group Athletics.
