                        MULTI EVENT EXPLANATION
1. The Multi Event is like a pentathlon at the Olympics in that the athlete performs a number of events and the
   points gained are added together to give a total. The events in the multi event are 100m, 800m, long jump,
   shot put.

2. If selected the athletes may participate in both individual events and also be nominated for the multi event.
   Although unlikely it may though be possible for a team to have 4 individual nominations and 2 Multi Event
   nominations in an event.

3. All athletes whether they be individual zone nominations or multi event nominations are eligible to win the
   individual event e.g. 11 Years Boys Long Jump - be the Lockyer Champion and Lockyer Record holder.

4. Selection in the Lockyer Team for the multi event will be based on performance in all four (4) disciplines of the
   multi event - 100m, 800m, long jump, shot put. And calculated by a specific points program.

5. Only one athlete can be selected in the Lockyer Zone Team for each age and sex for the multi event while
   individual events can have up to 4 selections.

6. The multi event at the Lockyer Zone Carnival will be combined with the regular individual events for
   800m, long jump, shot put but a separate 100m will be run. Therefore a child already selected in the 100m
   will have to run the individual 100m and the multi event 100m. This has been done so that individual times
   can be recorded for each 100m runner.

7.   At the Darling Downs carnival the Multi Event is integrated as explained in item 6 above while at the
     State all Multi Event element are run separately. Therefore a competitor selected in the 800m, long jump,
     shot put or 100m individual events and the multi event will have to run in their individual event and each multi
     event element.

Lockyer Zone Carnival Information
1. Nomination Fee of $4 per competitor will be invoiced to the District.
2. A detailed program with all events and competitors is available at the track for $2.
3. Competitors must compete in their own age group only. Ages are calculated according to year
   of birth (eg a child born in 1997 is 12 years old in 2009.)
4. Running spikes are allowed in all events except 800m, relays, discus and shot put. Spikes must
   be removed immediately at the end of the race. All care must be taken when wearing spikes.
5. High jump notes: Nine year olds are not permitted to do the “Fosbury Flop” or layout styles
   of jumps in high jump. Scissors only are permitted for this age group. If in the opinion of the
   high jump official the jumping style used by any competitor is deemed unsafe, that competitor
   can be withdrawn or told to use a different style.
6. Discus notes: As the 12 and 13 year olds competitors will be using a circle that has a cage at
   the Lockyer Zone Carnival, they will be permitted to use a turn in their discus throw. Therefore
   you may train your competitors in this event in the turn technique. Recommended training area
   is a cricket net which provides the safety required by the EPPR. No other age group will be
   permitted to do a discus turn at the Lockyer Zone Carnival.
7. Each district is allowed TWO circular relay teams, 4 nominations in all other events excepting
   discus where 3 nominations are accepted.
