COURSE

Detail

Course description

 

The Kennett Cup 3000 meters is a team event and, runners have four steeples on the course. There is one steeple at end of first lap, then two steeples per lap. These steeples are wider and more stable than sprint hurdles at 750mm high with two lower rails that small athletes can climb on. 

 

The laps are 2km laps with a 1km cut off lap to make odd distance lengths such as 3km and 5km. 

 

The rule is that you choose to either go over a steeple (taking the shortest line) or run around far end. With three steeples it’s probably 9m extra x 2 to go around the end.  Works out about even on the energy used!

The Kennett Cup allows the jump technique to be whatever you want, as long as both legs clear each gate. Runners can step, swing their legs over, or vault using their hands, the variety of techniques makes it extra interesting as an in spectator event!
