BONUS points were awarded to many competitors as Bendigo Region Athletics ran Nitro Round last Saturday.
Round seven in Athletics Victoria's Shield League action included some unique events and formats across the run, jump and throw disciplines.
In the two throw target javelin, athletes who landed their best mark within a one-metre wide strip added 30 points to their score.
The same applied at two throw target shot put, but the strip was 30 centimetres wide.
An extra 30 points applied for athletes who cleared all four attempts at high jump.
Competitors nominated a distance to reach. If they were plus five or minus five centimetres of the mark then 30 points were added to their score.
Bonus points at high jump went to South Bendigo's Quinn Grey, Jessica Grigson, Allie and Belle Guillou, Abbey Hromenko and Chris Timewell; Eaglehawk's Lily Marsh and David Chisholm.
Those to gain bonus points at javelin were Bendigo Harriers' Geoff Jordan; University's Ross Douglas; Eaglehawk's Craig Graham, Kathryn Heagney and Sam Storer; and South Bendigo's Emma Berg, Annette and Peter Curtis and Chris Timewell.
Extra points at long jump went to South Bendigo's Allie and Jackie Guillou; Harriers' Harriet Gall and Geoff Jordan; Eaglehawk's Corey Heagney and Denise Snyder; South Bendigo's Keely Trew; and Ringwood's Narelle Messerle.
Annette and Peter Curtis, David Chisholm, Narelle Messerle, Neil Shaw, and Eaglehawk's Wendy Ennor and Tim Sullivan gained a bonus at shot put.
In the first of the 60m heats, Eaglehawk's Kye Mason and Bendigo Harriers' James Miller could not be separated as they charged to the finish in 7.22 seconds from Eaglehawk's Angus McKindlay, 7.56; and University's Taine Bishop, 7.56.
Fastest in the women's 60m was Abbey Conquer from Bendigo Harriers in 8.17.
It was a winning double for Michael Preece of Bendigo Harriers in the mile, 4:31, and 3000m, 9:48.
