 Events Entry on night

The entry fee covers competing in both events if athletes so wish – 1 mile and 2000m: Both events are open to BHAA-registered athletes. If grades are combined because of low numbers, athletes will still score separately within the declared grade ranges. These events also count towards the Team Challenge (see below). Entry fee for BHAA individuals is €10 (Non-BHAA Day members €15).  Individual prizes for the first THREE athletes in each declared grade range per event, subject to the numbers criteria stated on the timetable above. Although an individual athlete can compete in both events, he or she can not win an individual prize in more than one event  (prize given on basis of best placing in either the 1 mile or 2000 m).  Events will run in the order 1 mile and 2000 m starting with Women and then Men from 17+ downwards to grades 1–6.

Regulations for Team Challenge – Entry on night

Teams comprise athletes registered for individual races – 1 mile and 2000 m. Teams must consist of three individual athletes for Men and Women.  One athlete is declared for the 1 mile and 2 for the 2000 m.  Team grades per BHAA grading system and rules.  Team scores are worked out by totalling the athletes’ times in their respective races. Final declaration of teams and competitors on the evening by 7.00 p.m. Every attempt will be made to accommodate late comers if at all possible, but events must go on time.  First TWO teams of three athletes in each grade will win prizes.

To increase team participation, one woman may be included on a Men’s team where this is necessary to make up a team.

    Our summer league moves to the hallowed confines of Trinity College on Wednesday. The grass track around the cricket grounds is a well maintained & manicured surface to run on. First race starts at 7 with the last one at 9 and a choice of distances, a mile plus a 2k, or you can run both if you want. Registration opens at 6.15 in the Moyne Institute which overlooks the track. These exceptional races in unique City Centre surroundings are a must for all members with a great atmosphere guaranteed & a lively pub within millimetres. Some runners wear spikes on the night which give an advantage if the grass is damp, most don’t. Races are divided into standards as shown above & there is an event specific team competition again detailed. We may not have balmy heat but hopefully it will be dry & certainly, fun.
