Entries:

The competition Starts on Monday 1st March and will end on Sunday 4th April (any submissions made afterwards won’t count).

You may have multiple attempts at each event but only your first submission on the online form will score in the competition.

Scoring:

We have decided to split this challenge into 2 leagues:

  • 5-to-score championship
  • 10-to-score championship

If athletes do not wish to participate in 10 events or more, their 5 best event performances will be taken. Any athletes who fancy competing across 10-13 events automatically exclude themselves from counting in the 5-to-score championship and their 10 best scoring events will be taken.

All results will be published as an “overall” and a “by category” (age group & gender)… There’s no reason to show any give here folks ⚔.
