            Competition Procedures

            Number Bibs

            Each athlete will be provided with two bibs and supporting pins for individual events.

            The bibs will be distributed prior to the event. Refer to the BIB Collection Details from the Event Details section of this handbook.

            Athletes should note the following regulations:

            • Bibs must not be cut, folded or obscured in any way.
            • Each athlete must use the same bibs, regardless of the number of events in which he/she competes.
            • Each athlete must display the bibs on his/her chest and back with the exception of those athletes competing in the Jumping events, for which each athlete may wear the bib on either the chest or back.
              Shoes

              Spike shoes are optional.

              NO spike shoes allowed for the 500m U7/U9 and 600m U11/U13.

              The shoe ruling applies to all events across all age groups (unless specified otherwise in this handbook), the practical difficulties in checking shoes at many events make it probable that detailed checks will only be carried out where Technical Officials or event organizers have doubts about the compliance of the footwear of an athlete, or where such reasonable doubts are brought to their attention.

              Primary responsibility for conformity lies with the athlete. Spot checks may be carried out.

              The list of currently approved shoes (as at 9 Sep 2022) can be found at https://www.worldathletics.org/download/download?filename=55456937-e187-4b41-9dbc-a678e4bb4236.pdf&urlslug=World%20Athletics%20Approved%20Shoe%20List%20(as%20at%209%20September%202022)

              The Referee and Technical Officials on duty at the event will be responsible for applying the rule. This may be through observation, spot checking, checking through a Call Room or by protest from other competitors.

              At events where a Call Room is being operated then all checks will be conducted in the Call Room. At other events, the Referee and other Technical Officials will take the responsibility to conduct checks, largely determined by observation and protests lodged by other competitors.

              The first check will be to see if the model in question is included on the WA lists of compliant and non-compliant shoes. If that does not resolve the check then it will be necessary to examine the shoe and measure the thickness of the sole.

              The table below shows the thickness of sole currently allowed across the complete range of athletics events.

               To ensure that the most up to date guidance and rulings are followed then check the WA website at: https://www.worldathletics.org/download/download?filename=b723c6b6-7d1f-40ad-8b27-1d3f956c6c99.pdf&urlslug=C2.1A%20%E2%80%93%20Athletics%20Shoe%20Regulations%20(effective%20from%2001%20January%202022)

               Ensure self-checking of shoe guidelines, should there be protest after the competition and found valid infringement, disqualification will be given.
