The Shuttle Hurdle Relay will be included as a standard event
for the first time (no longer just an exhibition event).
** summer 2011 USA Masters Outdoor Track & Field
Championships in Ohio **

Elgible for medals and team points.

Teams must comply with relay rules that passed at the Dec. 2010
USATF Convention. Shuttle Hurdle Relay teams will be in
ten-year-age brackets (M30-39, M40-49, . . . , W70-79, etc.)

Suggestion: Include alternates in case of injuries or schedule conflicts.

Rules that were used at the Orono, Oshkosh, and Sacramento meets
will be used again (for example - no running starts, no "zone",
wait for incoming runner to pass their respective finish line before starting,
hands may not touch the hurdles, etc.)

To be elgible for a "record" - the race must include two teams.

Each team has one "up" lane and one "back" lane [for safety reasons].

Hurdle heights and spacings will be the same as those
used for that particular age-bracket.

I will gladly assist, or hurdlers can form their own teams.
