30 January 2012

The Proposed Revision for Competition Rules has been completed ahead of the 2012-2014 UKA Rule Book publication with a number of key changes.

The revisions have followed a period of consulting the sport which commenced in 2011 when  all interested parties were invited to submit changes for the 2012 Rule Book. The deadline for submissions was 30 July, 2011. 

In all, 30 proposals were received by the rules revision group, with six requiring further discussion over the last few months.

Areas for discussion included:

  1. Track & Field Permitting

  2. Eligibility-Club Transfers

  3. Implementation of False Start Rule across some age groups from 2013

  4. U15 Boys and 400m v 300m rule proposal

  5. Under 15’s competing in two 1500m races in one day: 

  6. Under 17 athletes competing in an older age group

The Rule Changes document below outlines in detail changes made – it can also be found within the rules section of Competitions on the UKA website.
