Saturday Night Hour of Power
From 5.55pm on Saturday night there are feature races grouped in to an hour on the track aptly named the Hour of Power. The events include the men's and women's 400m finals, men's and women's 1500m finals, and men's and women's 100m finals. We anticipate some fantastic racing from some of the best athletes NSW has to offer. The Hour of Power is a must see!
On the Day Check-in
Athletes must report to Athlete Check-In at least 60 minutes before the start of each of their events to confirm their entry. Failure to check in may results in the athlete being scratched from the event. Athletes are encouraged to check-in at the commencement of each day for all of their events for that day.
In all field events, except for the high jump and pole vault, each athlete will be allowed three attempts and the eight athletes with the best valid performances will be allowed a further three attempts.
