For participation in athletic competitions at an ATOMIADE see chapter A 9.
2. Age Categories
The age categories listed in section B 1.3 of the Vademecum are valid for the classification and possible combination of age categories.
3. Competition Rules and Regulations
The current rules and regulations of the International Athletics Federation are to be applied.
It is mandatory for each participant to wear the registered start number visibly on the front of his/her tank top.
Use of personal equipment is not permitted.
4. Sports Disciplines
The organiser should offer, at the least the disciplines shown in the table below. Depending on available facilities, additional disciplines may be offered.
The explanations of the symbols in this table are:
- Competition with age categories : x
- Competition without age categories : o
* For Shot put, the weight of the shot will be as follows :
|Age category A, B, C||7,26 kg|
|Men||Age category D||6,00 kg|
|Age category E||5,00 kg|
|Women||Age category A, B, C||4,00 kg|
|Age category D, E||
** For Javelin Throw, the weight of the javelin will be :
5. Regulations of Disciplines
a) Competitions mentioned in the above table start according to age category stated in item 2.
b) Depending on the number of participants for 100 m, qualifying heats will be run. Only the winners of the heats will participate in the final. The remaining available tracks will be utilised for the final by the next fastest runners from the heats.
For the remaining running competitions, the fastest runners of the heats compete in the final.
c) The mixed relay follows the sequence of 500 m, 400 m, 300 m, 200 m, and 100 m. Runners must be of both sexes.

Trial results will be accepted for the final.
6. Three-event Competition's Evaluation
The three-event competition combines the individual disciplines in 100 m sprint, long jump and shot put. The following results are evaluated:
|100m||the time of the preliminary heat|
|Long jump||the best jump of the trial|
|Shot put||the best put of the trial|
If there are no trials and finals within the competitions of Long jump or Shot put or after the trial no competitor is eliminated the results of all the 6 attempts of the current competition have to be evaluated.
The scores will be calculated using the following formula:
|100m sprint||Score = a ( b - M ) ^ c|
|Long jump and shot put||Score = a ( M - b ) ^ c|
M = recorded performance (sprint in seconds, jump in centimeters, shot in meters
a, b, c = constants (see table below)
^ = exponential function, i.e. the constant c is used as an exponent
