Description

Age category tags are used predominantly in Road Running and Cross Country events so that athletes in different age groups can see who they are competing against and officials can determine age group prize winners.

According to ASA Rules and Regulations (22.9):

  • In open competitions, to qualify for individual or team prizes in all age categories other than Senior, athletes must display two age category tags, one on the front and one on the back of the upper outer garment, positioned above the licence/race bibs so that they are clearly visible. Age category tags must be clearly displayed for the duration of the event (not covered by rain jackets, hydration packs etc.). Athletes that fail to display both age category tags will be considered for Open and Senior prizes only.
  • Numerical age category tags shall follow the convention that the tag displays the youngest age of the age group concerned:
    • J = Junior (as defined in rule 22.1)
      • Road Running: 19 years and younger on 31st December in the year of competition.
      • Track & Field / Cross Country: 18 or 19 years on 31st December in the year of competition.
    • No tags apply to the Senior category 20-34 (or 20-39 as applicable).
    • 35 = 35-39 in 5 year groupings up to 100. From 100 it will read 100+.
    • 40 = 40-49 in 10 year groupings up to 100. From 100 it will only read 100+.
  • The lettering on the age category tags shall be red on a white background and must be a minimum of 6cm high.
  • Age category tags shall not be required in events restricted to athletes of one age category such as junior competitions or age group championships.
  • If an athlete wears age category tags that do not correspond to the age category they have entered, the athlete shall be considered only for Open and Senior prizes.
  • In non-stadia major events on the ASA fixtures list (ASA rule 1.1.d and e), where organisers provide participants with two personalised Competition or Special Number Bibs (see ASA rule 26), the age category tags can be included in the design of the Competition or Special Number Bib and separate age tags shall not be required. The lettering for the age indicator shall be red on a white background and must be at least 6cm high and be in the same position on both bibs. The top right hand corner is suggested but may be changed provided the age group is distinct and separate from the sponsor detail and race number.
  • When personalised Competition or Special Number bibs are issued by the organisers, in the event that an athlete’s age category tags do not match their correct age group, the onus shall be on the athlete to point out the error to the organisers and obtain a corrected race bib, failing which the athlete shall be considered only for Open and Senior prizes.
