Sunday Run Venues

Venue this week is Roundwood. Warm-up 9.15am, ready to run by 9.30am. All are welcome, but younger athletes must be accompanied.

Selection of Relay Teams

  • To be selected the athletes must first sign up to the event in good time.
  • Relay teams are usually selected to achieve the best result for the club.
  • Relay teams become better by being the fastest they can be and by executing changeovers with maximum efficiency.
  • This requires practice and training together.
  • So the fastest individual athletes may not necessarily form the fastest team.
  • Run offs may be held at short notice to clarify current performance levels.
  • Team order will be determined by the coach alone.
  • Team selection will be determined by the coach alone.
