Vu will select 8 athletes on the day to represent the club in this event.

The minute challenge will consist of two mixed gender events, one Junior – U8,9,10,11 and one Senior U12,13,14,15/16).  Each team is made up of 4 runners, one from each age group, two boys and two girls. Eg: A Junior team example might be; 2 Boys (U8 and U11), 2 Girls (U9 and U10). Flexible running order. The first runner will start off the gun and run for 1 minute, until the next gun. A marker is thrown down to indicate the starting point for the next runner, who has 30sec to start on the next gun. This is repeated for the 3rd and 4th runners.  The team covering the greatest distance after 4 minutes wins the event.
