  • Volunteers also help keep the entry fees low for everyone.
Order of Competition in Track Event Heats and Field Event Flights
In all events, the Clerk of Course groups lane races (races 400m or shorter) in this manner: adults first, from youngest to oldest, 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, etc. then youth 6 & under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14. In the 800, mile and 3000, we will go with a fast section first, then break the remaining entrants into manageably-numbered sections (800 under 12, mile under 16). The 3000 is generally one section (20 or less). If necessary, the Clerk of Course groups heats by gender, females followed by males. Alternatively, the Clerk of Course may consolidate heats across age and gender to save time.
In the high jump, we have two flights: starting heights below 5 feet followed by starting heights 5 feet and up.
Entry Procedures
  • At the registration desk, we issue a racing number to all entrants, to be pinned to the front of the running jersey.
  • We also issue a sign up sheet to each coach, to be completed for each team member receiving a number.
  • The coach must return the completed sign-up sheet to the registration desk.
  • To save time meet day morning, coaches may export a Hy-Tek ZIP file to send entries via e-mail to meet director Craig Chasse, and you can pay by club check the day of the meet (also could be an excel file but send by Thursday night of the week of the meet so we can edit and import that. Critical field needed:First name, Last name, Gender, City, State, and date of birth and/or age.
Helpful tip: just enter your whole team and then only pay for the ones who show up that morning. If you don't use Hy-Tek, you can download it for free at hytek.active.com/downloads.html and near the bottom of the page, click on the TEAM MANAGER 2.0 Lite option to download the trial version) and enter your team.
Finish Line and Scoring Procedures
FAT system is our primary system used. A Time Machine or other multi lane stopwatch is used as a backup. Times/marks are ranked in order from best to worst. These will be posted on milestat.com initially and then posted to pvtc.org once we correct any errors as necessary. Please note that we do not score by age group for the all comer meets. At the Potomac Valley Games, we will score in 5 year age groups for 19+, plus 15-18, 13-14, 11-12, 9-10, and 8 & under.
