Although it may not have been immediately obvious, split starts have always been available for those requesting them, the procedure being as below:
Both parents wishing to have a split start should tick the “Parent Split Start” box in step 2 of the Fabian4 entry process. The system will verify that there are 2 (or zero) ticks per entry form (i.e. the 2 parents participating in the split).
Complex split start requests (e.g. involving grandparents too) should be made using the special request box in step 3. The 1st runner on each day will alternate and will have a start time. The 2nd runner will have an open start time.
