Direction of the Run

Borges Based Rules

The direction of run is determined by the path taken once the competitor is deemed by the judge to be in control of the caber (this can be as little as the last two or three steps). The competitor may run in one direction and then stop and change direction, as long as they maintain control of the caber. If the caber lands in a 12 o’clock position pointing away from the competitor but not in a direct line with their run, then the judge must determine the competitor’s original direction of run and establish where a true 12 o’clock toss would be. He must then give an appropriate judgment based on the amount of deviation from the line.

NASGA Based Rules

The direction of run is determined by the direction in which the competitor runs after having control of the caber. An overhead view is drawn below in Figure 4 to demonstrate a toss such as this.
