AWARDS

At the end of every season a number of awards and certificates are given to athletes to celebrate their season of little athletics. This ranges from sponsored awards to participation certificates. Below you will find the awards on offer and their criteria. Our Multi Class athletes will receive the same personal best and age champion awards, however they will be calculated between Multi Class athletes only.

 

PERSONAL BEST AGE CHAMPION 

Personal Best Age Champion is awarded to the athlete with the most points accumulated throughout the season in each boys and girls age group. A winner and a runner up is awarded and based on PB's. To be eligible for this award you must be a full financial member of EMLAC. Each athlete will receive a point for every PB made at an EMLAC centre competition. 

- PB's made in external competitions are not included in this award.

*Disclaimer

At no point in the competition is 'coaching' an athlete to gain PB's every week tolerated. If this happens, the athlete runs the risk of all points being void and not eligible for the award. The executive committee's decision on this is final.

AGE CHAMPION 

Age Champion is awarded to the athlete with the most points accumulated throughout the season in each boys and girls age group. A winner and a runner up is awarded and based on a points system. To be eligible for this award you must be a full financial member of EMLAC.
