The first rounds of all events will be run in groups. These groups are pre-determined. It is important that you know which groups of each event you are in. A summary of groups can be found here while you can find an individual card with your groups here. Each competitor will be provided with a printed copy of their invididual group numbers at registration.

For each event we will run the groups in order, however we will be using two separate stages for this competition. Eg: groups 1 and 2 for each event will run at the same time. Please therefore disregard the the exact times shown in the group summary.
