Futher details of this event and online entry form will follow soon.
Auckland Masters Athletics are again holding the 4th NZMA Indoor Championships at the AUT Millennium, Mairangi Bay, North Shore, Auckland on Saturday/Sunday 4-5 August 2018.
Due to the re-configuration of the sport hall’s pole vault run-up and for safety reasons the meeting will now run over two days. Saturday afternoon events will be the shot put and pole vault. Sunday’s events will consist of three 50m races, triple jump, high jump, long jump and the final event will be the short hurdles.
As an insight to athletes who have not taken part in this meeting before, the 50m sprints are run in three lanes, which makes for very tight finishes. Each athlete will have three rounds if they wish. Round 1: men and women will run separately in age groups where possible, and if insufficient numbers in any age group they maybe amalgamated with another age group. Rounds 2 and 3: men and women will be combined and seeded based on their times from rounds 1 and 2 (not age groups).Normal championships rules apply to the long jump, triple jump and shot put, with each athlete allowed 6 attempts.
In high jump and pole vault normal rules apply, however in the pole vault if the officials deem that an athlete is a danger to him/herself then they will be withdrawn from of the competition. It would be appreciated if athletes competing in the jumps would put in their run-up marks before the commencement of their events, as this will assist in running the meeting to time.
