Run Meet: Entering Results

This article about entering results is for people who are using the Run Meet features on Athletic.net. 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 Athletic.net. On the Run Meet screen, click Results on the left.

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 Run Meet: 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 Athletic.net 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, open the side tray for that event () and 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 Run Meet: 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, Run Meet 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. Run Meet 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

Publishing Results

Once you've entered all the results for an event, you can mark it complete and publish it to Athletic.net. 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 Athletic.net. 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 Athletic.net. Additionally, once an event is marked complete, the scores from it will be included in the Team Scores report. See Run Meet: 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 Run Meet supports.

Once you mark an event as complete, the number of “Events Completed” at the top of the Run Meet 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.
Run Meet 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 Athletic.net 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.
