    Hi I have my 2.4km run soon and I was just wondering as to why they check your height and weight?

    They check the BMI which is a load of rubbish

    Weight in kg divided by height in meters squared.

    If your BMI or blood pressure is high, it's a no go.

    Max BMI for entry is 28. For all it's faults & flaws, the BMI is the standard applied.

    They should have checked your BMI during your medical. If it's to high then they may ask you to put your process on hold and 'lose your excess body weight' it's the same If your BMI is to low they ask you to gain weight though. Dependant on who you have. For my medical I was 18.1 on my BMI and he didn't question it but some can ask you to pause the process and redo it at a later stage. Just have to weight yourself and see if it falls within the 'healthy' bracket.
