VAL AUGUST NEWSLETTER

UNDERAGE RACES
The VAL and other pro running states are working towards a national pro running body. In doing so, we are beginning to standardise race categories in across the country.

The minimum age to register with the VAL is now 11. Athletes aged 11 to 13 on the day of competition are eligible to compete in U/14 and U/18 races only. Athletes aged 14 and over can compete in Open and Restricted races.

Under 14 races will be run regularly throughout the 2017-18 season. Like other junior races, handicapping will be discretionary and there will be a sash for every winner. Prizes such as souchers will replace prize money in this category.

Under 18 races will largely replace the U/20 races this season. A sash for every winner and prize money will be available in this category.

Under 20 races will be run selectively throughout the coming season as the VAL begin to phase out this category over the coming few seasons.

The InterSport SportzBiz 400m U/20 series will continue as normal during the 2017-18 season. 

RACE CALLERS
The VAL are in need of another 1-2 race callers so if you fancy yourself behind the microphone, call or email us today! This is a paid role.

PHOTO FINISH
We're looking for more people to learn and operate the photo finish system. If you're handy with camera's and computers, get in touch with us asap. This is a paid role.

COMPETITION SINGLETS
New competition singlets are in the works and we're looking forward to decking you out in the new racing kit next season!
