MORNING SITE PLAN

AFTERNOON SITE PLAN

Out of bounds:

As always, areas marked in olive green on the map are also out of bounds. These are generally small gardens. There are small areas of pink stripe, these are also out of bounds.

Special considerations:

There may be other sports codes practicing on the field. Students must avoid these areas.

Please be aware and avoid construction work that is going on.

Placings/Medals:

Both events count for the final result, so the times from the morning and afternoon are combined to form a total time.
The top 10 from each year group in the morning event start last in the afternoon and in reverse order, so the fastest person from the morning starts last.
Medals for the top 3 in each year group will be presented at prizegiving, which will be held as soon after the last finisher as possible – approx 3:30pm
