RunMeet: Producing Heat Sheets and Other Reports
As any experienced meet host will tell you, paperwork is at the heart of every track meet. RunMeet makes producing that paperwork quick and easy. Reports available fall into 4 distinct categories:
- Meet Program (also known as heat sheets)
- Finish Line Sheets
- Field Event Scoring Sheets
- Team Scores Reports
You can access the reports section by clicking the printer icon () in the top right corner of the RunMeet screen.
Once you access the reports section, you can select the type of report you'd like to create from the top.
A meet program is a listing of all competitors in each event, listed heat-by-heat, with events in competition order. It is commonly used by meet directors, clerks, starters and fans.
There are a few options you can select from when printing your meet program. You can choose to display or hide certain event types, genders, or divisions. Additionally you can choose to produce double-column or single-column meet programs.
- Event Selector: Select or deselect a type of event to include it or exclude it from the program.
- Gender Selector: Select or deselect a gender to include or exclude those events from the program.
- Division Selector: Select a division (e.g., Varsity, Junior Varsity) to show a report with only that division's athletes and events.
- Column Selector: Select either one-column () or two-column () to produce the report in that format.
- Print: Engages your browser's print command to print the report as it currently shows on your screen.

Finish Line Sheets
Finish line sheets are used to record the times of each athlete in running events. They show the running events in scheduled order, heat-by-heat. Next to each athlete is a space to record their place and time for later entry into the computer. Some of the options are described above. Options unique to this report include:
- Show Empty Lanes: Check this box if you'd like each the report to include spaces for any unassigned lanes in each heat. This is useful for last-minute changes or additions to races so that the additional competitor's name can simply be written in.
- Separate Page for Each Heat: Check this box if you'd like each heat of each race to print on its own page.

Field Event Sheets
Field event sheets are the scoring sheets used to keep track of attempts and competition placing for field events. Each flight of each event that is seeded will have its own sheet with the members of that flight filled in, with spaces for each attempt in each event. There are two styles of field event sheet—horizontal and vertical. Horizontal events are all throwing events, as well as jumps measured by distance, rather than height. Vertical events are pole vault and high jump, where the jumps are measured by height. Other than the gender and division selectors described above, the only option for field events is to display horizontal events or vertical events for printing.
Example of a horizontal field event sheet:
Example of a vertical field event sheet:
- Vertical event scoring sheets should be printed in “landscape” (with the long edge of the paper as the top) mode to ensure that the entire sheet is printed.
- The small boxes along the top are for each successive height that the bar is set at. Fill them in as competition continues. Bar heights are set by meet management.
- The large boxes next to competitor names are to record the attempts by each athlete at each height. Normally a competitor gets three attempts per height.
- Jumps are recorded using the following notations:
- O: Successful jump
- X: Unsuccessful jump, either due to a foul or due to the bar being knocked down
- P: Pass. Athlete has elected not to jump at this height
This report will calculate and produce a report showing team scores by gender and division. As results are entered and marked as complete, the team scores are updated (see RunMeet: Entering Results for information about entering results).

Results from RunMeet can be exported in several formats: HyTek semi-colon delimited, TFRRS CSV and a custom tab-delimited format. Note: the Download Results option is only available once RunMeet has results.
