The Maritime Track League is a series of events that will offer high performance track and field competitions opportunities to athletes from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island! Athletics New Brunswick, Athletics Nova Scotia, and Athletics PEI have been working on this project for the past few years.
The first 4 years were a huge success and we are certain that 2019 will be even better.
This series will serve to encourage our top junior and senior athletes to take part in competitions across the Maritime provinces throughout the outdoor season.
The series will take place over the 2019 outdoor season, incorporating meets from across the Maritimes and culminating in the Atlantic Championships in July. Prizes will be awarded to the top-3 male and female athletes in the junior and senior categories. This year there will be tropheys for top 3 as well as the prize money. Athletes must compete in any 2 series meets plus the Atlantic Championships to be eligible for the awards. Rankings will be determined based on a score calculated from a percentage of the Canadian record in each event, with the overall winners being those who have accumulated the best 3-performance score over the whole series. The equation below will be used to determine an individual performance score.
Score = [P / R] x 100
R is the Canadian record* in an event converted to IAAF points
P is the athlete’s event performance converted to IAAF points
*Current record as of April 1st, 2019
The athlete’s overall score will be the sum of the three best performances they have over the course of the selected meets. An athlete can record more than one performance from a single meet, but must still compete in 2 meets plus Atlantics to be eligible for the prizes. Athletes must be a member in good standing of their provincial branch to be eligible for the League. The ongoing series rankings can be kept and published to a website so the athletes can track their standings in the League. Performances achieved with no wind reading or with illegal winds will be included. In the case of a tie, the winner will be the athlete with the greater single performance score; if still tied, then the athlete with the single greatest performance by IAAF points will be the winner.
We will also offer a prize to the top 3 Para Athletes based on the Raza points system.
