Ginninderra Athletics believes in reflecting the needs of our members who participate in Grass Track or Red Track Athletics meets with us.
In running, hurdles and walks events, athletes in the U12 age group and above may self select which starting group that they wish to participate with.
It is not a race against other runners, but a timed run or walk and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.
This is done via a "Seeded Runner" area at the front of the starting field. All participants will self-seed their starting positions according to the pace signs at the starting line.
What this might look at for any given Track Event, a different mix of ages and genders, all participating at the same level. Very much like Park Run or a Fun Run.
All Red Track Athletics meets run by Athletics ACT (AACT) use a seeded start based on your Personal or Season Best.
