There are 10 rounds for the McKinnon Shield in 2020/21 season. These 10 meets are all being held at Herb Towers Track, Mt Smart Stadium.

To compete at a McKinnon Shield you must be 12yrs old as at 31st December in the year of competition e.g.

  • To compete at the five meets prior to Christmas you must be turning or already be 12yrs of age on the 31st December 2020
  • To compete at the five meets after Christmas you must be turning or already be 12yrs of age on the 31st December 2021

For example – I am turning 12yrs old on the 1st January 2021. I cannot compete at a McKinnon Shield meet until after Christmas as before Christmas I am still only 11yrs old as at 31st December in the year of competition (2020).

These dates are set by World Athletics.
