RunMeet: Entering Results

This article about entering results is for people who are using the RunMeet features on If you're using a different meet management software, or are attempting to upload results previously published in print or on another website, see Uploading Track & Field Results #1: Overview.

Entering Results

Once you've printed your finish line sheets and field event score sheets and events have been completed, it's very easy to enter those results and immediately publish them to On the RunMeet screen, click Results on the left.

If you're using a FAT system, see Using RunMeet with Fully Automatic Timing.

After that, click on the event for which you'd like to enter results. Remember, you may need to click Track or Field to display the event you need. Since you clicked Results above, you'll now see a box next to each athlete to enter their time or mark.

Enter the time or mark next to each athlete and press <enter> or <tab> to move to the next field. As you enter results, the Heat Place (Hpl), Overall Place (Pl), and Points Awarded (Pts) will be automatically calculated and displayed next to the result. Points are awarded based on the scoring scheme you set up in RunMeet: Setup and Settings.

If you need to override the automatic calculation of these items, click the edit icon () next to any row that needs to be changed.

In this example, the times are shown to have been produced by a fully automatic timing system (notice the FAT next to each time). Be sure that you have selected the right kind of timing device for the event when entering results. Hand times published to are always converted using established conversion standards to be comparable with FAT times for ranking purposes. Therefore, you should enter stopwatch times exactly as they appear on the timing device, and do not apply a conversion factor. If you need to change the timing method for a particular event within your meet, click on the timing method icon (either FAT or ). Ensure that the correct icon is displayed next to the times. If you need to adjust the timing method for the meet as a whole, see RunMeet: Setup and Settings.

If you're used to entering results in other commercially available meet management software, you'll be familiar with the ability to enter results without punctuation. Rest assured, RunMeet will behave in the same manner, even with field events measured in English. Simply enter the mark without any punctuation and you will be shown a preview of the mark as the system is interpreting it. For example, typing 1221 will produce the following:

For longer events, the system will still interpret items correctly. Typing 133724 will produce the following:

And this even works for field events:

Result codes

In order to completely fill out results, you'll need to be able to enter non-numeric codes for various athlete statuses. RunMeet supports the following:

  • DNS: Did not start/did not show
  • DNF: Did not finish
  • DQ: Disqualified
  • NT: No time
  • NH: No height
  • ND: No distance
  • NM: No mark
  • SCR: Scratch

Entering field results

To enter field results, make sure that the Results tab is selected, and then choose Field from the top row.

Once you access the event you're looking for, you can either choose to enter final results directly into the Mark field, or you can select Field Series and enter each jump and throw. This will allow you to have the software break ties and rank results.

To save time and avoid re-typing results from sheets, put a volunteer with a mobile device at each field event and enter the field series directly! You can enter the field series as it happens, and as soon as the event concludes, publish it!

Publishing Results

Once you've entered all the results for an event, you can mark it complete and publish it to To mark an event as complete, click the Mark Complete () at the top of the event.

Once you click Mark Complete, the software will check your results and then publish the event in question to your meet page on When the event is successfully published, the clipboard icon will turn green and you will receive a notification at the bottom of the screen that the event was successfully published to Additionally, once an event is marked complete, the scores from it will be included in the Team Scores report. See RunMeet: Producing Heat Sheets and Other Reports for info on how to produce a Team Scores report.

All entries in an event must have a result in order for an event to be marked complete. If you're having trouble marking an event as complete, ensure that there is something entered in the Time or Mark box next to each athlete in each heat or flight of the event. All athletes must have a result, even if that result is a DNS, DNF, or other “no result” code. See the result codes above for the codes that RunMeet supports.

Once you mark an event as complete, the number of “Events Completed” at the top of the RunMeet Page will update. Once all events have been marked completed, you can click Mark Meet Official to indicate that the results on the page are finalized and official. For more information, see Unofficial vs. Official Results.

You can still make corrections to completed events, even if the results have been marked Official. Simply edit the appropriate result. Once you do, the Mark Complete button will turn orange, prompting you to click it to republish results.
RunMeet makes it easy to publish results from your meet immediately at the conclusion of each event, so that athletes and spectators both on site and off site can view results online. Remember that marking an event as complete publishes that event to immediately for all visitors to your meet page. The sooner you enter the results, the sooner they are live online! Don't wait to enter completed results.
