Years ago when there were not a lot of female (or over 35 competitors), the SAAL followed the VAL and programmed a few combined vets/womens races.

The female athletes weren't happy with the combined races and lobbied to have their own races and for several years now, the SAAL have not programmed any combined women & vets races.

Basically as long as the women could get reasonable numbers then the SAAL was prepared to program over 35's and women's races separately.

The number of female competitors (and over 35's ranks) has continued to increase across the range of events where the SAAL would never consider going back to combined events.

There are 47 entries in the women's & vets 120m at Peninsula - 27 females and 21 male vets.

The total prizemoney for the race is $1000.

I wonder what the outcome would be, if it was actually put to a vote of the athletes, whether they'd rather have a combined event or two separate races for lesser money?

From what I've heard, my guess is the female athletes would rather have their own event.

You are right Youngy, the majority would prefer the races to be separate, however we have a few clubs who think it is better to put on a race worth more money and combine the categories. I would much prefer to see 2 races worth less prizemoney than a combined race as we reward 2 runners with sashes at the end of a meeting rather than 1 and it is not an absolute nightmare to handicap. Also, when we get out of lanes and into the 300m races, we see the type of argy bargey that happened in the final at Terang, which is not a good spectacle for the sport. Does anyone want to see blokes 'muscling' girls out of the way on the track? I doubt it.

47 Entries however when you consider the amount of scratchings the number who run may be around 30. Therefore we may have as few as 12 or 13 in one particular field - pretty small.

I agree with you Youngy. I'm a vet and I hate having to share sashes with the women. For a while there I even refused to enter them.There should be a system in place where once a minimum number of entries have been received for a paricular meet, then the race must automatically be divided. They used to always divide the distance races in the past so there's no reason why they couldn't do it again. I'm sure a race for each at Peninsula worth $500 each would be more favourably received by both divisions. Two sashes means two happy runners instead of one.
