Important Combined Events Rules Three trials only are allowed in the long jump and throwing events. In track events, there are no "finals" - heat times are scored on the IAAF and ESAA tables. Points are based on the hand timed pages but please note - when fully-automatic timing and photo-finish are available they will be in use, in conjunction with the appropriate scoring tables. NB. Quadrathlon scores are taken from the Midland Counties AA tables. In the running and hurdling events, a competitor shall be disqualified in any event in which he or she has been responsible for three false starts. In the Senior Men’s Decathlon and the Senior Women’s Heptathlon, any athlete making a false start shall be warned. Any athlete(s) making further false starts in the race shall be disqualified from the race. In the Quadrathlon, Pentathlon and Heptathlon competitions, the 800m events will not be started at the curved line, but will be run in lanes for the first bend.
Any athlete failing to take part in any of the events shall not be allowed to take part in any subsequent event in that competition, but shall be considered to have abandoned the competition. That athlete shall not figure in the final classification. The winner shall be the competitor who has obtained the highest number of points in the 4, 5, 7, 8 or 10 events as the case may be, awarded on the basis of the IAAF and ESAA Combined Events Scoring Tables. In the event of a tie, the winner shall be the competitor who has received the higher number of points in a majority of events. If this does not resolve the tie, the winner shall be the competitor who has scored the higher number of points in any one of the events. This procedure shall apply to ties for any place in the competition. Awards: Somerset AA medal to the winner of each competition. Somerset Schools' AA County Champion badge to the top Somerset Schools' athlete in each competition. Certificates for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each competition. Certificates to all athletes who complete their Combined Events competition.
