CANADIAN TIRE INTERIOR ROAD RACE SERIES RULES

1 Races of standard distances must be measured with a Jones Counter and should be certified for accuracy.

2 The I.R.R.S. age classes should be followed in all series events.

3 The I.R.R.S. age groups for both men and women are as follows:

U 16
16-19
20-29
30-34
35-39
40-44
45-49
50-54
55-59
60-64
65-69
70-79
80+

4 For both the road racing and the cross-country series, a runner shall compete in the same age division all year. Accordingly, a runner's age group for the year shall be that in which his or her age falls on the last road race of the year, in this case Sep. 21, 2003.

5 It is necessary that all entrants in each series race be covered by BCA insurance. Runners who do not have a BCA recreational or competitive card must pay an additional $3.00 with each race entry in order to receive a Day of Race card. Two thirds of the monies collected via this must be sent to B.C. Athletics to cover liability insurance.

6 At the Race Director's discretion, races will have a Day of Race late entry fee.

7 Host clubs must submit a copy of race results to the address below as soon after their race as possible. Backup diskettes with results should also be sent to Ken. This is very important for accurate maintenance of series results.Ken Manning ([email protected])

8 Host clubs must pay $75 for each I.R.A. Road race. This money goes towards advertising, administration, and awards for the series. Series cross-country races will not be charged this fee

9 All races must use the Canadian Tire custom-printed race numbers with tear-off tags. Contact Dave Ellis (492-6267) for the quantity you require for your event. Clubs must pay 50 cents for each number ordered.

10 All series results will be done using the computer program purchased by the I.R.A. The computer is pre-loaded with the race results program and the results of all previous races. Race organizers should be able to complete their own results and update series results. Questions or concerns about the computer or its use should be directed to Ken Manning in Vernon
