Teams for the 4 x 1500m relay:

For record purposes (1) ALL runners in the relay must be current registered members of ACTVAC, and (2) The four runners must either be in the same age group, or ONE may be in the next age group up. Correction - or ONE or TWO may be from the next age group up. For example, a W35 team may either consist of four women in the W35 age group, or it may consist of three W35s and one W40, or it may consist of two W35s and two W40s. Having said that, I would prefer to see runners compete in their own age group and only move down one when a team is not available in their group. Teams should be encouraged NOT to pinch the best runners one age group up if it means they are taking them from another team.

So round up people in your age group and get them signed up as members if necessary!

It’s a good opportunity to encourage others to be involved.

If you cannot get a team together - everyone will get a run, in a composite team if necessary.

  1. Oops, first of all I got advice that ONE runner can come down from the next age group, but now I have been advised it's TWO.

    (Sorry about the confusion.)

    So a W35 team can also be two W35s and two W40s. Apparently.

    (I am still confused!)
