Rules

The Gary Honey Long Jump Challenge will be open to six male and six female jumpers.

Athletes are required to enter their season’s best jumps when registering for this event.

The successful applicants will be notified once entries have closed.

Steve Hooker Pole Vault Team Challenge

 

Rules

The ladies and gentlemen’s competitions will occur simultaneously, but in the separate pits on the D (ladies on the outside runway).

The winning pair is decided by adding each couple’s best heights. There will be no count back, so in the event of a tie, a jump off will occur in the usual way, but each pair will nominate one vaulter to take part (either the lady or the gentleman). The jump off start height will be the last height missed by the nominated vaulters.

Start Heights

Around 3.20 for the ladies and 4.20 for the gentlemen.

Start List

Once the start lists are finalised, the highest ranked lady will be paired with lowest ranked Gentlemen, etc… Generally the 2017 ranking lists will be used to rank the vaulters.

 As each couple needs to wear the same colour outfit; so you need to contact your partner to discuss attire. This is not fancy dress (it is a serious competition named after Victoria’s most famous pole vaulter) but we want vaulters to look good. Once you have decided on your colour contact Mark Stewart, as we need all couples in different colours. First in best dressed.

 Past Winners

2014 Phillipa Hajdasz & Cameron Sherry with 8.20m in green.

2015 Alana Boyd & Lachlan Burns 8.37 in white.

2016 Annabelle Anderson & Max Mishchenko with 8.00m in orange.

Competition Rules

Age Group: Date of birth is taken from 31 December, 2018. Please check athletes are competing in the correct age group for their event. If your team needs to be changed due to the age group entered being incorrect please let AV know as soon as possible.

Age Group Year of Birth Relay Length Course Laps

Course: Fluoro orange and blue flags will be used to mark the course – the orange flags will be to the left and the blue flags to the right. Safety Tape and stakes will continue to be used at major corners and the start/finish zone.

There must only be 2 athletes from a team in each age group on the course at the one time (example runner 1 who is running and runner 2 who is waiting in the changeover area). This is for safety reasons for all athletes running through the changeover area.

Relay Numbers: Colour coded laminated numbers will be used to identify competitors in each age group.

U14 Boys & Girls U16 Boys & Girls U18 Boys & Girls U20 Boys & Girls
Pink Green Orange White

Coded numbers identifying age group will be used, i.e. ‘16’ for U16, ‘20’ for U20 and then the team number will be the ‘1’, ‘2’ – ‘40’ next to the age group number for example 14.1 or 14.40.

 All relay identification numbers must be worn on the FRONT and BACK of each competitor’s uniform. Each schools team will have their own bib number with athletes 1 & 3 wearing the same numbers and athletes 2 & 4 wearing the other numbers during their leg of the relay.

All numbers must be returned to AV at the end of competition. Please do so by placing the numbers in the tubs located at the AV Admin area.

Running Tags: The last runner of each team will wear a tag around their wrist which will have their team, age division and bib number on it. Once the final runner has completed their leg of the relay an official/club helper will take the tag off the runner to help keep a track of the finish order.

Please make sure the final athlete is wearing this tag and it is handed in at the end of the race.

Weather Policy: Athletics Victoria has a wet/warm weather policy in place for the upcoming XCR’18 season. Please note we will let Team Managers know any information regarding this before the day or make announcements on the morning of the event. Please listen out for these throughout the day if any extreme weather announcements.
