A 0.25m Stawell bonus lift will apply for both Gift races, pending all eligibility criteria being met - the Stawell bonus criteria can be found in the VAL Handicap Regulations.
Athletes that have not raced with the VAL before, won't necessarily be given the VAL Novice mark (the VAL Board has endorsed an exception for the purpose of this event).
VAL handicappers will consider recent performance history from the NSWAL and/or amateur athletics results, when determining handicaps. Should the handicapper not have enough performance history for an athlete, they may still allocate the novice mark.
All athletes are encouraged to submit their personal bests and recent performance history via their VAL athlete profile as soon as possible - this will assist the relevant handicappers in allocating your handicap.
Should a performance on the day be inconsistent with the performance history provided, Stewarding regulations will be applied.
All competing athletes will be considered for a performance 'tick', providing they compete to the Chief Stewards satisfaction and in line with the VAL Handicap Regulations.
