Upload XC results in Athletic.net CSV format

If you do not use one of our supported cross country meet management systems (HyTek, Meetpro, RunScore, and Race Director), you can still upload live results to AthleticLIVE.


  1. Create your meet in AthleticLIVE. Select the "Athletic.net Delimited Format" meet management system.
  2. Download an FTP client of your choice. We recommend WinSCP.

Upload Events

Create a CSV spreadsheet of your events (Download example spreadsheet). Each event must have a unique name and event number. If your meet is also on Athletic.net, we recommend using the Athletic.net DivisionID as your event number.

If you're using FinishLynx or another FAT system, the number in this spreadsheet should match the number used in your FAT system. Save the file as events.csv.

Before the meet, upload your event spreadsheet to AthleticLIVE.

  1. Go to admin.athletic.live and go to your meet detail page.
  2. Click "Upload Events".
  3. Choose the appropriate CSV file and click Submit.

Upload Results

Results must be uploaded in this format: https://cs.athletic.net/admin/w/guide/athletic-net-custom-format-example.aspx. You must use the correct column headings.

Results must be uploaded one event at a time. To match results with a particular event, you must do one of the following:

  1. Name the file "alive_results_[number].csv", where [number] is the event number (Example: alive_results_1.csv).
  2. Fill in the DivisionID column for each result with the appropriate event number.

Use your FTP client to upload results. Credentials are on your admin meet detail page. If you use WinSCP, here is a guide to connecting to FTP. Use the FTP protocol.
