    Multievent Program (note: early start for U13-17)

     

    Please be aware that this season's Multievent Championship will be conducted at Foxglove Oval on Saturday, 3rd February 2018.  The competition structure is similar to last November’s Pentathlon, where athletes accumulate points for their performances (not placings) across all the events they compete that day. As well as being an excellent warm-up for next month's Region Championship, all athletes may use their total score as an extra event towards their yellow/green/red/blue achievement levels.

     

    Events for all age groups (except U13-17s -- see below*) will start at 8.30am. Athletes arriving late will miss the opportunity to accrue points from any events conducted in their absence. Awards will be presented to the top three point scorers in each age group, provided they make a reasonable attempt at ALL events.

     

    *Under 13 to 17 athletes will need to be at Foxglove by 7.45am sharp for their first two events -- long jump and shot put.

    When:

    Friday 16th, Saturday 17th February & Sunday 18th February 2018 - U8 to U17

    This event will be held on 16, 17 and 18 February 2018 at HOMEBUSH (Region ‘5’) - NEW LOCATION THIS YEAR. The program has mostly the same running order as Zone Championships but is subject to change.

    Athletes U8 to U17 compete in events for which they qualified at Zone Championships.

    For your informtion, Regions with two Zones (like ours - NDLAC is in Region 5) have six automatic places progressing through to their respective Regions from the Zone Carnival. Then a maximum of four next best qualifiers from each Region will also be taken through, making a total of up to 16 athletes in each event at each region.

    The first three placegetters in all events receive medals. The first two placegetters in U9 to U17 events automatically qualify for the State Championships as will the next eight best performances in finals across the eight Regional Championships. 

    Full details will be provided closer to the date.

    Middle Distance Handicap

    All U10-17 athletes are invited to compete in the 18th running of the prestigious NDLAC Middle Distance Handicap to be held 8.30AM sharp prior to our regular program on Saturday 24 February 2018 (week after region).

    The MDH is a mixed age race over 1500m and is suitable for any U10-17 athlete who has achieved a red- or blue-level performance over 800m or 1500m this season. As competitors will be allocated a time handicap, the winning boy and girl will not necessarily be the fastest runners. The first three boys and girls across the line will be awarded trophies at our end of season presentation night, whilst the names of the two winners will be inscribed on perpetual trophies. Two additional prizes will also be awarded to the boy and girl whose net running time is closest to a time they nominate before the race starts (no watches please!).

    Pre-registration is NOT required. Any athlete interested in competing should be at Foxglove Oval no later than 8.15am to receive their handicaps, record their net time prediction and warm up. The handicap stopwatch will start at 8.30am.

    Program

    The likely weekly program is:

    • 4.00pm: 2000m (U11s & U12s) and 3000m (U13s to U17s & open*);

Note that the 500m race is reserved exclusively for U6s and U6s may not compete in other distances. **Registered Tiny Tots may compete as U6s.
