ACT Race & Fitness Walking Club Inc
2016 -2017 Summer Race Program
|During the summer months, events catering for both race walkers and fitness walkers, will be conducted on a Thursday evening, generally starting at 6.30 pm.
Primarily these will be at the Woden Athletic Track, however six (6) meets will be held at the AIS Athletics Track due to the lack of facilities for some other athletic events.
The walks are for ACT Walkers, ACT Veterans Athletic Club and Athletics ACT members. Walks held at Athletics ACT Summer Series competitions are not judged.
The Club is fortunate to have a number of qualified non competing walk judges who are willing to judge on a regular basis, however competing members may be rostered. PLEASE CHECK THE ROSTER and should you be unable to undertake your duty please arrange a swap and advise the Race Secretary.
Competing members rostered will be given four (4) points in both the handicap and fastest time pointscore competitions on a maximum of two occasions.
LONG DISTANCE – combined womens & mens handicap pointscore; separate womens & mens fastest times pointscore. SHORT DISTANCE – combined girls & boys handicap and fastest time pointscore. Race walkers and fitness walkers are eligible.
POINTS are awarded as follows: 1st = 7, 2nd = 5, 3rd = 4, 4th = 3, all other finishers get 2 points. Non finishers get 1 (except in fastest time pointscore). 4 points are awarded in both competitions to competing members on walk judge duties.
POINTSCORE AWARDS to be presented are generally dependant on the number of competitors in each category; 8 or more 1st, 2nd, 3rd; 5 to 7 1st, 2nd; less than 5 first only. However, the Race Secretary may use his discretion. The best ten (10) event results only will be used to determine the winners in each category.
|The CLUB PERPETUAL AWARDS are presented at the summer presentations to the following; Female Race Walkers of the Year, Male Race Walker of the Year, Fitness Walker Award, and Most Improved Race Walker Award.
To be considered for these awards a person must have competed in club competitions on at least ten (10) occasions during the combined 2016 winter season & 2016/2017 summer season, though Committee may use its discretion. Members are encouraged to submit nominations to the Race Secretary for consideration.
|AGE for ACT Walkers Club Championships & Racewalking Australia events (except those combined with Athletics Australia events) is age on the day; for Athletics Australia & Athletics ACT Championships age is as at 31 December in the year of competition.|
