Exhibition Cross Country Runners

I'm experimenting with RaceTab for use in a cross country meet. By league agreement, each team will designate their varsity and JV runners before the race, but all runners (of the same gender) will…Continue

RaceTab 4.25 Very Slow When Sharing Files

I plan to use RaceTab 4.25 to manage a high school cross country meet. I'd like to use two computers hardwired (ethernet cable through a switch) together where both computers are running RaceTab and have the meet open. My thought is that, during a race, one operator can be using RaceTab's stopwatch to get times as the kids finish, and the other operator can be using the other computer to enter bib tags from the previous race, print results, etc. Before the race, one computer can be used to edit…See More

Jeff Kalember replied to Brian Bearss's discussion Heat Sheets with Bibs for Clerk
"Best solution so far comes from Don Passenger – usea waterfall start for seeding distance races and assign each athlete to a Lane then that lane that becomes their bib/ID number. Score in finishlynx by lane"

"Jeff, I've been using John's suggestion for two seasons, and the only drawback I see is that *all* the athletes are assigned bib numbers. So, you either must choose between printing out the sheets for the clerk with either one event per…"

"THIS IS EXACTLY THE QUESTION I WANT ANSWERED TOO!!!!!!!!! I want an easy to way to assign bib numbers (ID) to runners only in the distance races.  These numbers should then print on the heat sheets so the clerk can assign alley/ID number from…"

"Not that I even get some of this but here is an idea that is simple. Take your male spreadsheet. Assign your jv runners to a wave on the spreadsheet. You said each division has a specific sequence number, correct? Start the males. Then, when you…"

I'm experimenting with RaceTab for use in a cross country meet. By league agreement, each team will designate their varsity and JV runners before the race, but all runners (of the same gender) will run in the same race and cross the same finish line.

Importing a Cross Country Meet from Athletic.net

I've been using RaceTab for a few years to score our track meets. I set the meets up in Athletic.net, teams make their entries, I download the entries and import them into RaceTab (without even needing to set-up any events, teams, etc -- those are all generated automatically), and things work really well.This CC season, I'm going to try to do something similar. I'm thinking I must be missing something. Unlike for a track meet, do I need to create a new meet in RaceTab first, and then try to…See More
