Bibs: In the 2022/23 season, there will be no cloth bibs issued. We are committed to reducing our footprint on the environments we use. Your new timing bibs are now made from hardier material, designed to last the whole season. Please ensure you care for your bibs, e.g. do not machine wash, do not fold. Lost or damaged bibs will incur a new bib fee.

Please Note: Athletes do not enter themselves into relay competitions. Clubs will enter and pay for team entries and select the athletes for their teams. Any questions regarding team selection should be made directly to your club.

For an athlete to be eligible to score team points they must be registered before and approved before the 11:59 am Wednesday 4 May 2022 cut off time, otherwise the athletes’ team will compete as an invitational and not score points.

Team Sheets, Relay Bibs & Electronic Timing Tags:

  • As we move toward a more electronic way of staging XCR relay events, the burden on officials and clubs will begin to decrease. For this meet, clubs will be required to supply helpers as per the club duty roster, however, will no longer need to provide timekeepers for each team, however we will require some additional assistance to cover gaps on the day.
  • Team managers are now required to complete a team sheet advising Athletics Victoria of their athletes and their bib numbers. Once complete, this can be submitted to the Athletics Victoria administration tent. Clubs are encouraged to submit this prior to completion of competition to allow the timely presentation of medals and publication of results.
  • Teams are expected to return all relay bibs and electronic timing tags upon conclusion of their race. Please note that an $80 replacement fee will be invoiced to the club for any electronic timing tags not returned.
