Saturday, 9 Oct 2021, 13:45 to 16:00: Philp Shield (club event) - RESCHEDULED, Olympic clubrooms
Updated 24 Sep 2021.

This is the new date for this event after being postponed from early September

Club teams road race, various distances up to 5km. Teams are made up of all ages (juniors through to masters), with runners and walkers. Different team members run/walk different distances. The team with the lowest sum of finishing places wins. 

Time: 1:45 (at the clubrooms) for selection of teams.

Course: Alex Moore Park track/neighbouring footpaths.

Please bring a plate for afternoon tea afterwards.

Race rules...

1. Intro/summary:

The Philp Shield is a team event where participants compete in teams for the overall prize - the Philp Shield. Competitors compete in different 'subraces' of varying distances, against competitors from the other teams in that subrace. The overall team score is an aggregate of the scores of the individuals. The event is based on a circuit of about 1.6km, so that 2 laps are 3.3km and 3 laps 5km.

2. Subraces:

The event consists of 'subraces' where a subrace has a distance and category (e.g. run/walk/child run). For example: 1 lap walk, half lap child, 1 lap run, 2 laps run, 3 laps run. The Race Organiser
determines the subraces on the day, depending on who is registered to compete. The event should have at least one 1-lap run subrace, one 2-lap run subrace and a 3-lap run subrace.

3. Registration:

Participants should register their activity (run or walk) when they sign up for the event. The Race Organiser may need to change these, in advance and with the competitor's agreement, to make the teams work.

4. Teams:

The Race Organiser determines the subraces that the event includes, and the number of competitors from each team that should do each subrace (e.g. 1 person doing 1 lap walk, 2 people doing 1 lap run, 2 people doing 2 laps run, 1 person doing 3 laps run). The Race Organiser splits participants into teams with the appropriate number in each (e.g. 6 members). Each team will nominate which team members do which subraces, so that each member is doing the activity they signed up for, and the number doing each distance is correct as specified by the organiser.

If the number of competitors doesn't fit evenly into the teams then an additional team member may be added to some teams

5. Scoring:

Each finisher will earn points for their team, equal to their finishing position in the subrace in which they are competing. The team's points is the sum of its members points. If there is an extra member in the team then the placegetter receives a score but that score does not count in the team total. The winning team is the one with the lowest score. In the case of a tie, a count-back is to be
used, based on the lowest best place in the team (and if they were also the same, the lowest second place, etc).--
