EVENTS The events at the carnival vary across age groups - younger athletes compete in four events (a sprint, a longer run, a throw event and a jump event). Older athletes also compete in hurdles. The list of events for each age group, it can be found at the Little Athletics ACT website. The event program and other useful information can be found in the event booklet.
RESULTS Athletes earn points for their performances in each event (based on times or distances, not placings). Medals are awarded based on total points earned across all events (1st, 2nd and 3rd). Each club also earns points for the placings of their athletes, with a club point score determining the ‘winning’ club on the day.
FINISH TIME Athletes are free to leave at the conclusion of their events, the final events are expected to be completed by 3pm. This year the events for Under 8 age group have been brought forward to ensure they are finished prior to other age groups. Event timing will depend on the number of athletes who register in each age group.
WHAT TO WEAR Athletes competing MUST have a GUNLAC shirt with registration number, age patch and Coles sponsorship patch.
We do need parent help to run the carnival - all Little Athletics ACT events are run by parent volunteers. GUNLAC will be asked to fill a set number of officials roles on the day, and we will set a roster for our parents to fill these roles. You will only be asked to fill a role for around 1-2 hours on the day.
If you decide to not attend the carnival please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so we can take you off the parent roster (preferable to filling vacant spots on the day).
