Varsity Boys & Girls Individual winners will receive a Dry-Fit T-ShirtAll athletes should be entered through the Milesplit entry portal, accessed through our Meet Homepage on the Calendar. It is not necessary to assign athletes to the individual races, just ensure that your entire roster is entered. Each athlete will receive a shoe chip and a bib number, and you decide on race morning which event you'd like to have your runners compete in (but please run only in those races which you've previously indicated you'd run in via communication with the Meet Director).

Varsity Races: in general we request that you limit your entries here to 10 athletes per varsity race and the rest will run JV.

Timing and Results:

The Perfect Timing Group will handle results and scoring. Each athlete will be assigned a shoe chip and each athlete's name and time will appear in the official results for their race. Please note the following:

1) Bib numbers must match the chip numbers for each athlete.

2) Use the provided zip-ties to secure chips to EITHER shoe. We will remove the chips in the finish chute with scissors, and attaching the chip to shoelaces means we'll have to cut shoelaces!

3) VERY IMPORTANT -- please return ALL your team chips to the Timers at the finish line before leaving. There is a $20 fee for each un-returned chip.

4) With single-chip scoring, opportunities exist for an athlete's place as determined using a torso finish to differ from the place based on the shoe-chip reading (i.e., in a very close finish where a FAT camera has to be used to determine the proper order of finish). In our Championship events, we ask coaches to review the results as soon as they are posted and to make the timer aware of any instances where team PLACES might be affected by an improper ordering of two athletes. We will review issues involving the Top 2 team places immediately (inasmuch as awards are in play), and will attempt to review other requests after completion of the meet. Please use discretion here, understanding that the beauty of chip timing is in its efficiency and the fact that it allows us to complete the races and results-compilation very quickly.

5) We will use traditional scoring for team results. In some case, schools will have more than 7 athletes in the Varsity races, and in those cases we will ask those schools to declare which of their 7 athletes should be counted for scoring. Every effort will be made to insure that the results reflect the properly scored athletes, but the Coaches' efforts are appreciated in timely reviewing results to note any discrepancies.
