How does Slot Allocation works for Age-Groupers?

  • Prior to the race, al least one Slot should be assigned to each age group category (male and female). The final allocation will be determined on race day based on the number of athletes who really starts competition in each category.
  • If any of the categories does not have any athlete register, the Slot for this category will be assigned to the next category of the same gender.
  • The Final Slot Allocation should correspond with the number of athletes in Age Group Categories that are present in the competition itself.
  • Winner athletes must claim their Slot in person (physically), during the meeting for the Allocation and Re-allocation of Slots according to the date place and scheduled times.
