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.

2018 Zatopek:10 Graded 10km Track Races

Athletics Victoria and Box Hill Athletics Club welcome all distance runners to take part in the 2018 Zatopek:10 Graded 10km Track Races.

These three track races will be conducted at the Box Hill running track at Hagenauer Reserve.

Make the most of this opportunity to complete the rarely raced 10km distance on the track, this is the race of truth for all distance runners. We welcome all runners of all abilities to come and compete. You don’t have to be a member of an athletics club to compete in this event, all runners are welcome.

These three graded track races are for runners of all abilities and we want to provide the runners with the opportunity to race on the track in a graded competitive race.

There will be three separate track races on the night, select the division that matches your best 10km time in the last two years.

A new innovation that started in 2017, is that for those entering division three, no qualifying time will need to be submitted, so if you’re not sure if you can run 10km in under 60 minutes, don’t worry, we encourage you to start the race and see how far you can run in 60 minutes. If you haven’t completed the full 10km in the time we will ask you to leave the track and your result will be the distance that you covered in the sixty minutes. Think of the division three event as the 60-minute run and there will be no pressure on you to run the full 10km distance. We will continue to operate this in 2018.

When: Tuesday 11 December 2018

Where: Hagenauer Reserve, Box Hill North, Victoria 3129

8:20pm – 9:00pm Division One 30 – 39-minute 10km runners

Event Check in: Closes 15 minutes before each division start time.

Cost: $15.00 per athlete

Entries: To avoid overcrowding on the track, entries are LIMITED, we can only have a maximum number of runners in each of the three divisions. Entries can be made via the AV Entry Portal.

NOTE: Each runner MUST provide a LAP SCORER, to ensure that every runner completes the full 10km distance.
