Rules and Regulations

Divisions:

No divisions, Corporate Teams and Clubs compete together.

Corporate Eligibility Standards:

All team members must fall into one of the following five (5) eligibility categories: Employees:
An employee competing on a corporate team is not eligible to participate as a member of a Club team.
Must have been employed continuously by the corporation forty-five days prior to the start of the meet. They must be working 20 hours or more per week (for each of the six plus weeks leading up to the meet), and be on the corporation's payroll and have taxes withheld by the corporation.
All athletes must be at least 18 years old. Contractors:
Must be under contract with the corporation six months prior to the start of the meet. Must be working 30 hours or more per week, for that corporation, for the entire six months. Eligible contractors comprise independent contractors; outsourced former employees who continue to perform the same work for the corporation, and staff who have long-term service commitments with the corporation, who take direction from corporate employees, and who work to fulfill corporate business objectives, even if they are paid through payroll or temporary staffing agencies. Employees of outside consulting firms who are assigned to client corporations on task assignments are not eligible to compete for those client corporations (example: Andersen Consulting employees on assignment to Hughes may not compete for Hughes). Contractors are eligible to compete as alumni if they worked for the company for 24 months. Any contractor who qualifies as alumni under this provision would be part of the alumni rule which caps the number of participants in this category at 5.

Retirees:
Must be pension eligible, former employees of the represented corporation, with five or more years of service to the corporation and whose age plus years of service equals fifty-five years or more. Years of service accumulated with a business divested, sold or spun off from the parent corporation may be included in the calculation. Retirees must not be a full time employee of another CRA competing corporation. There is no limit on the number of retirees who may compete for a corporation.

Alumni:
Up to five (5) ex-employees or eligible contractors (see item 2. Contractors) who have previously competed for a team in at least one (1) CRA or USCAA National or Regional Track & Field Championship are eligible to compete for that team, provided they are not employed by another competing team. No more than three (3) ex-employees can come from a single company.

Family Members:
Immediate family members of Employees, Contractors, Retirees, and Alumni are eligible. A family member is defined as a spouse/lifetime partner, son, daughter, or parent. A Family Member must be at least 18 years old.


Club Eligibility Standards:

Athletes must be currently member of their club. An athlete competing on a club team is not eligible to participate as a member of a corporate team.


Competitor Age

Competitor's age will be determined by their age in years as of December 31 of the current year. For example, any competitor born in 1970 will be considered to be 50 years old for the 2020 competition, regardless of where in the calendar year their birthday falls.


Frequency of Participation:

Each athlete may compete in any individual events, no limit on the number of individual events entered. Each individual event can only count toward one relay event. For example, if an athlete runs a 200m, it counts toward the 200m Individual and only one relay that has a 200m leg. The same athlete can compete in another relay, but only for another distance, like a 400m. Except for Teams with 20 or less athletes (athletes still only have to run a distance once, but it can be used in more then one relay).

Once you submit result on the APP, it is it! If you are not happy with your result on any given day, please still keep record of your result and try again another day.


Uniforms:

Each team/clubs should strive to have all participants wear their corporate or club jerseys/singlets.



Track Events - General
