RUN ELITE TRACK SERIES – GREEN POINT STADIUM

RunElite Track Series Results

This is a series of track meetings to be held at Green Point Athletics Stadium, starting on Sunday, 28 February 2021, and running until May. The meetings will be held on Fridays and/or Sundays.

Entries are limited due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the need to practice social distancing and comply with the regulations.

ENTRY PROCESS

Entries will be done as follows:

Entries will only be done online and there will be NO entries on the day at the venue. This is a strict rule and access to the stadium will be denied to anyone whose name is not on the list given to stadium security.

Entering does not mean a guaranteed spot in on of the races.

Entries will be accepted and lane draws done on the following basis:

  • Preference will be given to senior and u20 (18-40) athletes.
  • Previous best performances.
  • Previous selection for Western Province or South African teams.
  • Consideration will be given for the need to prevent races being crowded due to the pandemic.
  • Lane draws will be posted on line by Thursday evening for a Friday meeting and Friday evening for a Sunday meeting.

ENTRY FEE

R50. Note that this includes the entrance for the athlete’s coach (ie the coach enters on the athlete’s entry fee).

WITHDRAWALS

Athletes who are unable to participate are expected to withdraw formally before the event so that replacements can be contacted and lane draws redone.

Athletes who do not withdraw formally are likely to be barred from entering future RunElite series meetings.

COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Spectators will not be allowed under any circumstances.

Athletes may be accompanied by a coach, whose details must be provided during the entry process.

No more than 50 persons are allowed access to the stadium at any time so athletes will be required to leave as soon as reasonable after their event has completed.

A health questionnaire must be completed during the entry process and a temperature check will be performed at entry to the stadium.

Social distancing must be respected and masks must be worn except when competing. No group photographs must be taken and handshaking, hugging, etc must not happen.

EVENTS

Although this may change, the general principle will be that there will be one sprint, one short middle distance and one long middle distance event per meeting. The organisers reserve the right to change this, however.

There will be no field events, but requests to include field events will be considered, with the following conditions: There will be an extra cost for officials, the extra event will impact on the number of athletes permitted for other events, and there will be a need to organise equipment. Track events will at all times take priority.
