Games Rules


Only Judges, Committee and Competitors will be allowed inside the enclosure – this rule will be strictly enforced.

Competitors must pass on the outside and be a clear length in front before taking the inside position. The inside man must allow room for the outside man to pass: anyone, in the Judges’ opinion, running wide to prevent another competitor from passing will be disqualified.

The Judges’ decision is final in all cases.

The Committee reserve the right to cancel any event or alter the Order of Events or withhold a Prize if occasion arises or if there is insufficient competition.

All competitors must wear a number which can be collected from the Secretary’s Tent.

In the Open Heavy Events competitors must wear kilts.
