Compete as safe and practical

Competitors should try to compete in a normal track and field event following WMA rules. This will not be possible for athletes in all locations. This Challenge accomodates most competition conditions so almost anyone can participate. The result category will be flagged into the categories below.

CATEGORY A – ORGANIZED MEETING

Pre-organized competitions run by organizations at an athletics facility like a track, designated jumping / throwing field or arena or gym with all applicable WMA Rules being followed.

Very Accurate Results – Much like a performance at a WMA Championship where tracks would be certified, timing equipment calibrated, jumping pits leveled, throwing sectors laid out by knowledgeable people and all performances timed or measured by capable officials. Only fully officiated (more than one certified official) performances are eligible for this Category

CATEGORY B – UNOFFICIAL COMPETITION

Officiated competitions at an athletics facility. As described above, officials can be friends or fellow competitors timing, marking, measuring and calling fouls. WMA Rules should be followed.

Accurate Results – The major possible difference between this and Category A is the track or competition area and training and certification of people overseeing the competition. The people officiating the competition may not be able to fully monitor the competition and might not know all the applicable rules. Therefore, competitions without the certified facilities and officials might not be as accurate as Category A performances.

CATEGORY C – ANYWAY SAFE

Road, parking lot, field or wherever else the athlete can compete safely. WMA Rules followed wherever possible.

Result Accuracy Varies – There are many differences running 400m on a road. The road is probably not precisely level and measuring 400m is cumbersome. Similarly, creative ways athletes find to compete are different conditions than Category A which affect the potential accuracy of the performance time or measurement.
