        Examples

Team of 6 30 30 14 14 14 14     116 Youth (<120), Junior (<150), Open (any age)

*Category eligibility only takes account of the sum of ages of all members. For avoidance of doubt, a 40 year old may still compete in the youth or junior category if the total age of his/her team meets the category criteria.

  Runner 1’s Age Runner 2’s Age Runner 3’s Age Runner 4’s Age Runner 5’s Age Runner 6’s Age Runner 7’s Age Runner 8’s Age Total Age Eligible for:
