Changes of note:

Juniors 15-17 may now compete as adults in a sport (previously 16-17).

Cycling-Clarification that juniors are not permitted to compete in the 20K cycling team event.

Kayak – the format for the events are now initially described; more is expected shortly.

Road Race – the distance for both men and women is now correctly stated as 5Km.

Swimming – the reference to the swimming rules has been changed to the new online location.

Swimming – the days of the two distance events (200 and 400 Freestyle) have been switched to allow virtual triathletes to compete in cycling.  This change was incorporated into the registration system before it was opened for registration, so all registrations are correct.

Athletics (Track and Field) – the weight of the ball for the ball throw has been stated.

Virtual Triathlon – due to increased interest in this event, the age groups currently in use for doubles events will be used for triathlon as well.  There will be three sets of medals for each gender instead of one set.

If you have any questions on these Rules, please contact Colin White, Ireland Team Manager, at Colin@ika.ie.
