Rules

General Rules
Please go here for rules covering all events.

Track Rules
Competition will be in separate divisions for Men and Women in 5-year age groups (50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89, 90-94, 95-99, 100+). No spikes allowed.    

A) General
All events are governed by the Amateur Athletic Union of the United States, Inc. and the USA Track & Field Association (USATF ), except as noted otherwise below.

I) Track Events

  • Participants must be ready to compete in all track events at times scheduled. Late participants may be disqualified.
  • Track events will be timed and recorded. The line judge’s decision is final.
  • No spikes are allowed in any track event held indoors.
  • Within each age group and gender division, the person with the best recorded time is declared the winner.
  • False Starts
      1. False starts will be called in the 60m, 200m and 400m runs.
      2. A false start is called on a competitor if he/she moves her body before the starting gun has sounded.
      3. If a competitor false starts a second time, he/she will be disqualified.

a) Running Events: 60 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters, 800 meters, 1600 meters (staggered starts on all but 60 meters)

b) Walking Events: 800 meters, 1600 meters, 3-mile Power Walk

  1. In all events walkers must walk, not jog or run. The heel must touch the ground first.
  2. Walkers must maintain unbroken contact with the ground. Thus the rear foot must not leave the ground until the advancing foot has made contact. Judges will be spaced around the track to enforce this rule.
  3. Walkers will be given one caution before being disqualified. A disqualified racer must leave the track immediately.
  4. Walkers that need assistance because of limited eye sight may be accompanied by a trained personal guide during the race. However, the walker and the guide may not touch each other at any time during the race and the guide’s presence must not interfere with other walkers except in case of an emergency. Walkers may use ‘walkers’ as long as they do not interfere with other competitors.
