The Spiderback Gift is a handicap race with each age group representative starting time based on recorded to date season best times or fastest time on selected competition days for 100m (U6-7), 200m (U8) and 800m (U9-17). There are two races:
- U6-8 200m;
- U9-17 800m
At least two 100m, 200m or 800m times must be recorded by the Age Group representative and the winning time must be within 20% of that time.
The Spiderback Gift will start from either the 200m or 800m start and all representatives run either 200m or 800m through a modified track.
