The Athletics NZ Constitution requires that Members are provided a period of 50 days consultation on any proposed changes to the Regulations. 

Proposed Amendment to Competition Regulations: Posted Dec 17, 2019. 

1. Change in the Masters Men age group
A proposal has been received from Paul Hewitson, WHAC, to change the current age-range in the Road Relay for the Masters Men (M40-49) to Masters Men (M35-49).  This would bring the Masters Men grade in line with the Master Women (W35-49) and with the Maters Men grade in other NZ Championships.

2. Road Relay Open Masters (over 60) grade.
When the Road Relay Open Masters (over 60) grade was first introduced in 2011 on a trial basis, it was proposed that the change be reviewed after the 2014 event. A review wasn’t conducted, however there has been no negative feedback regarding it’s introduction or on other Masters grades.  It is therefore proposed to retain this grade.

Athletics New Zealand members are invited to submit their comments on this proposed amendment (available to view here) to by Wed 05 Feb, 2020.

The current Regulations are listed on the Athletics NZ website here
