a) Runners are placed in heats or sections on the basis
of seeds (best times), submitted with the entry, so that the best runners will
meet in the final. Competitors entered with no seed times will be considered to be the
slowest in the race.
races with heats advancing to a final, the entrants will be sorted from the
fastest to the slowest on the basis of their seed times. The fastest runners are placed in different
heats (e.g. #1 in heat 1, #2 in heat 2, #3 in heat 3, etc.). This procedure will be used in the 100m,
200m, and sprint hurdles. Once thus
seeded, the lane assignments for the heats will be assigned at random, and the
heats run in random order.
the 400m and relays, as only 6 runners or teams can be accommodated in one
race, the race will be run in sections with the slower runners and teams being
in the first or second sections and the fastest 6 runners in the final or third
section. For the relays, there will be
three sections of 3, 4, & 6 teams each.
for the 400m, relays and the sprint finals will be assigned in a spearhead
fashion. This places the fastest seed
times to the center lanes, the slowest seed times to the inside and outside
the 800m all runners will run in one race from a box start. (If there are more than 15 runners there will
be two sections). Runners will be assigned
to the boxes (Box 1 -
lanes 1 & 2, Box 2 - lanes 3 & 4, Box 3 - lanes 5 & 6, so that the
faster runners are not together. Runners
must stay in their boxes until they reach the marked cut-in spot at the
beginning of the back straight.
the 1500m and longer races, all runners will start from a curved line. The starting positions of the line will be
drawn at random.
be honest with your seed times - do not submit fictitious times. If no times are available from this year,
please submit last year's best times as an indication of ability.
speed up the meet as much as possible, the 3000's, 1500's, & 800's may be
combined (e.g. mgt, jr, sr girls) - but this will depend on numbers of entries.
QUALIFYING FOR FINALS
Track Events - From
heats to finals (no semi-finals):
2 heats, the first 2 in each heat and the next 2 fastest will advance to the
