Centre Top – The top must have the current season’s age group badge, registration number and sponsors patch securely attached, with the sponsors logos and numbers clearly visible. There should be no other badges attached to the top.
Shorts – Athletes must wear shorts, sports briefs or two-way stretch above the knee shorts (commonly referred to as bike shorts or skins) in their centre’s approved colours.
Athletes may wear a second pair of shorts underneath their Centre shorts. If worn, they must be plain and the same colour as the approved Centre shorts colour or black, and conform to the description above.
For cross country events only, athletes may wear 3⁄4 or full length tights/leggings. Tights must be plain and the same colour as the centre shorts or black. Centre shorts must be worn over the tights.
