Integrating AthleticRUNMEET and AthleticLIVE

AthleticLIVE now integrates with AthleticRUNMEET!

You can provide your meet fans with the sophisticated live results platform used at high-profile meets, while still using the easiest and simplest meet management system available: AthleticRUNMEET.

Configuration

To get started, set your meet up in AthleticRUNMEET, and, once everything is configured to your satisfaction, click the AthleticLIVE icon at the top right of the page.

Lots of AthleticLIVE features require competitor numbers! If you haven't configured competitor numbers in AthleticRUNMEET, you should do so before setting up AthleticLIVE.

On the screen that appears, you'll see pricing details for three different levels of services that AthleticLIVE can provide. Click Create Your AthleticLIVE Meet to continue.

A new window will appear with the AthleticLIVE Create a Meet interface. Lots of the details from your meet will already be filled in, but you'll have to add some details yourself. Those details will be flagged by the AthleticRUNMEET Logo.

Confirm the meet's time zone by selecting it from the drop-down menu:

Select an existing meet credit or purchase a new meet credit. Meet credits are how you pay for AthleticLIVE services. If you have an existing credit that you've already purchased (or was provided as a test credit), you can select it from the drop-down menu. Otherwise, follow the prompts to select the appropriate meet level that you'd like to purchase. Each option is described in detail.

If you're using AthleticRUNMEET, you're probably collecting entries on AthleticNET. Make sure you check the box labeled Athletic.net Entries (subtract $10) to get discounted pricing.

Once you've selected your credit, select Step 2: Click to Buy Credit. You'll be prompted to enter payment information. Once you've purchased your credit, you can continue with the meet configuration.

Underneath the credit purchase section, there are a number of options that you can configure to suit how your meet will be run, such as whether you want to display scores, live scoreboard options, and more. For a complete description of these options, see Create a Meet.

After all options have been configured how you like them, click Save Meet at the bottom of the page.

You'll be taken to the AthleticLIVE Meet Administration Portal, where there are a few options to configure, based on what features you've selected. For a Standard meet, there will be minimal interaction with this page.

You can send meet fans the shortened link shown under Share URL, or you can simply send them to athletic.live and your meet will be visible under Today's Meets on the day of the meet.

Clicking Go to Meet will take you to the public-facing meet page. If you visit immediately after meet creation, you'll see the meet data loading onto the page. Initialization of the public meet page can take one to two minutes.

Once you return to AthleticRUNMEET, you can use the AthleticLIVE icon at the top right to access the AthleticLIVE Meet Administration Portal, as well as the public-facing live results page.

Live Scoreboards

If you selected a Pro or Pro Field meet credit, you'll have extra steps to configure live data from your FAT software and/or AthleticFIELD. Once you've got RunMeet up and going, check out the appropriate sections regarding Live Scoreboards in Your First AthleticLIVE Track & Field Meet.

During the Meet

The integration between AthleticLIVE and AthleticRUNMEET is designed to be as “hands-off” as possible. Changes made to athletes, events, or seeding will be reflected on AthleticLIVE within a few seconds.

To publish results, you must have entered a result for every entrant in the event. A result can be a valid time or mark, or it can be one of the results codes listed in RunMeet: Entering Results.

Results will not publish until every entrant in the entire event (e.g., all heats of a Women's 200M or all flights of Women's Long Jump) has a result. Once all entrants have a numerical mark or other result, the results for the event will publish on AthleticLIVE within a few seconds.
