Race rules.

Males and females will run this race separately.

The race consists of 5 elements with 2 stations at each element. Each station is required to accumulate the given number of reps above. Any athlete may work on ANY station’s reps, but there can only be 2 athletes on the GRID at any given time. An athlete may sub in the athlete from the start line at any time. Each station’s reps must be completed at THAT station.

Athlete may NOT accumulate reps of the subsequent station until BOTH of the previous station’s reps are complete. For example, both stations of (10) clusters must be completed before any reps of the TTB or Sit ups can begin.

Time stops when both working athletes complete the final stations and cross the finish line.

Note:  Since true GRID teams are larger, the race is called the Triads and there are 3 stations. The movements are different. The other general rules are the same.
