*  NB: If a small number of runners is entered in any category, races may be combined, but athletes will still score separately with the designated grade ranges
† The distances are chosen to mark the Silver Jubilee – 1000m for Year 1 and 2500m for year 25
‡  For Women grade ranges for prizes are initially set at 1-15 and 15+; if sufficient women register, the range of the grades may be changed to provide three grade groupings and an increased distribution of prizes; For Men for three individual prizes to be awarded there must be 10 athletes in the 2-grade range – based on 2011 numbers, this criterion would be met for all grades up to 17-18; where a two-grade range has less than 10 athletes, two prizes will be given whtre there are 6–9 athletes, where there are 5 or less athletes, one prize; based of last year’s numbers 2 prizes would be awarded for grades 5–6 and one for grades 1–4
 
 
Events Entry on night
The entry fee covers competing in both events if athletes so wish – 1000 m and 2500m: Both events are open to BHAA-registered. 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 1000m or 2500m).  Events will run in the order 1000 m and 2500m 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 – 1000m and 2500m. Teams must consist of three individual athletes for Men and Women. One athlete is declared for the 1000 m and two for the 2500m.  Team grades per BHAA grading system and rules. Team scores are worked out by totalling the athletes’ times in their respective races. If possible please wear team singlets or vests or T-shirts of identical colour. 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. More than one team may be entered per Business House Grade but teams must be declared as "A" and "B" before events commence. To increase team participation, one woman may be included on a Men’s team where this is necessary to make up a team. There is no additional cost for team entries – this is covered by the individual entries for each athlete.
