The Spiderback Gift

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.

Redback Gift

The Redback Gift is a 100m handicap race run by a finalist from each age group with the finalist and handicap based either on the recorded to date season best times or the fastest heat time on the day of the Gift in 70m or 100m races. There are separate boys and girls finals.
Each competitor in the Redback Gift final will start from a mark on the track determined by handicap.  As a result, the slower age group runners run a shorter distance, and the fastest age group runner is the back marker.
