    Middle Distance Handicap + Invitational Sprint (NEW DATE!)

    Middle Distance Handicap + Invitational Sprint (NEW DATE!)

    Due to the recent wet weather cancellation, we are moving our annual NDLAC Invitational Sprint to now be held on the same date as the Middle Distance Handicap - Saturday 16 Feb 2019.  See below for details!

    Middle Distance Handicap

    All U11-17 athletes (not U10 as previously advised) are invited to compete in the 19th running of the prestigious NDLAC Middle Distance Handicap to be held 8.20AM SHARP prior to our regular program on Saturday 16 Feb 2019 (week after Region).

    This is a mixed age race over 1500m with a difference – athletes do not make a pack start but are instead allocated a time handicap after which they start, based on their own times. It is OPEN TO ALL U11-17 ATHLETES.

    As competitors will be allocated a time handicap, the winning boy and girl will not necessarily be the fastest runners, which creates some great competition and tight finishes!!

    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 8.05am to receive their handicaps, record their net time prediction and warm up. The handicap stopwatch will start at 8.20am.. 

    Invitational Sprint

    The fastest boy and girl athletes over 100M based on year-to-date results will compete in this prestigious invitational event, with the whole Centre cheering the races on.  First place getters will have their names etched on the perpetual trophies handed out at Presentation Night.  Please keep an eye out for our latest Newsletter, and TeamApp communication for more details on qualifying athletes!
