Infringement of this rule will lead to disqualification Whether or not a tether is being used, the athlete and guide shall be not more than 0.50m apart at all times. Note: Where extraordinary or accidental circumstances lead to a breach of this rule it shall be the sole responsibility of the Track Referee to decide for or against disqualification. The principles that will govern such a decision shall include consideration of any danger to or disadvantage suffered by another competitor in the same race Guide runners must wear a bright coloured vest, in order that they are clearly distinguished from competitors. These vests will be provided by the Organising Committee Field Events - Time Limits In field events where competitors receive assistance from callers or guides, the time allowed for an attempt shall begin from the moment when the official responsible is satisfied that the athlete has completed the process of orientation.

The escort/caller must leave the runway before the jump can begin For F11 to F13 athletes, the take-off area shall consist of a rectangle 1.0 x 1.22 metres which must be prepared in such a way by the use of sand, that the athlete leaves an impression on the area with his or her take-off foot. The maximum distance between the take-off area and the front edge of the landing pit will be one (1) metre. Note: For purposes of safety, it is strongly recommended that the minimum distance between the axis of the runway and the sides of the landing area should be 1.75 metres. If this recommendation cannot be met, additional safety measures may be required by the officials responsible for the event Field Events - Throws Escorts/callers may be used only by throwers with F11 and F12 classifications Competitors with F11 and F12 classification, (where appropriate) must be brought to the throwing circle by an escort/caller It is the task of the escort/caller to help the athlete orientate himself or herself in the throwing circle before the throwing attempt. The escort must leave the circle before the throw can begin Acoustic orientation is permitted for athletes with F11 and F12 classification before, during and after their throwing attempts Competitors with F11 and F12 classifications must be escorted from the throwing circle only after the judges have determined whether the attempt is valid or not. Note: Rule (Section C vii) regarding exiting the throwing circle after the throw shall not apply If the event judge determines that an escort/caller who is providing acoustic orientation is in an unsafe location, the judge will require the escort to move. 3 P age

AMPUTEE ATHLETES - CLASSIFICATION Prosthesis Athletes in classes T42, T43 & T44 shall use leg prosthesis in running events. Hopping is not allowed.
