Rules of the League:
Relay and Parlaaf Rules:
3 x 1000m Relay (total distance 3km):
Three runners each do 5 x 200m with the total event being 3km.
Runner 1 does 200m and hands to Runner 2. Runner 2 does 200m and hands to Runner 3.
Runner 3 does 200m and hands to Runner 1 This process continues until Runner 3 completes his/her fifth 200m.
If all runners are of equal ability, and can run 200m in 30s, then each runner should run for 30s and have 60s rest.
5km parlaaf - there are 2 runners in a team:
Runner 1 starts in the middle of the back straight and runs 200m and hands over to Runner 2, in the middle of the home straight.
While Runner 2 is doing 200m, Runner 1 must cross the centre of the infield back to his/her original starting position, and must get there in the time it takes Runner 2 to do 200m. Runner 2 then hands back to Runner 1.
Whilst Runner 1 is doing the next 200m leg Runner 2 must cross the infield back to his/her original starting position in readiness to receive the baton. This process continues until 5km has been completed (13 X 200m for Runner 1 and 12 x 200m for Runner2).
If athletes are of equal ability and run 200m in say, 40s, then the runner recovering has to cross the infield in no longer than 40s to be in position for the next handover.
