NI & Ulster 10,000m Track Championships

15 April 2016

This year the 10,000m Track Championship will be held as a standalone event on Sunday 15th May at the Mary Peters Track from 1.30pm.

The event will be sponsored by ChampionChip Ireland and in addition to the normal championship medals for the top three men and women times will also be ranked against the Age Graded tables with prizes to the top 3 men and women.  The age graded tables are a way of adjusting an athlete’s performance according to age and gender

If sufficient entries are received more than one race will be held with a maximum of 30 runners in any one race. These races will be graded as far as possible according to previous best times (road times will be used if necessary) and medal winners will be awarded according to times.

Times will be compiled according to the Mary Peters Track Photo Finish system with times awarded accurate to one hundredth of a second. The Championchip system will be used only to verify that athletes have completed the correct number of laps.

Entries are open to all registered athletes but owing to the necessity to prepare graded start lists entries will not be accepted after the closing date and certainly not on the day of the event. Entries will also be restricted to 100 entries on a first come first served basis. However athletes who have achieved sub 35 minutes for men of sub 42 minutes for women may enter even if the quota of 100 has been reached. However they must still enter by the closing date.

A maximum of 4 races will be held depending on the number of entries. Start lists and start times for each race will be posted on line shortly after the entry closing date.

Entries cost £5 and are open to all registered athletes who are 18 years or over on the day of the race (15th May)
