Athletics carnival information and pricing examples below.
How does it work , the start is triggered by the operator or start device fixed to the starting gun. Beams are then hit by the athlete which triggers the computer and records time and place. Athletes then must remain in their lanes at cones which are placed on the track A print out is given to the track officials who in most cases then record the names of athletes say first 4 on the sheet. Ideally you should direct kids from the track in lane order off and record the names. This will allow the next race to commence promptly this in conjunction with on demand marshalling can speed up the carnival. Once the track marshall is all good the white flag will be given so the next race can start.
What about back up, while the gates are very reliable and we have a back up camera for places. We advise that you have a place judge and 2 back up time keepers.
If possible and to get the most benefit , either have pre done heats or record athlete details at the start line. Schools with 400 plus competitors will improve track run time , free up staff and have more accurate parent proof results.
Other tips include laying out cones at the 100m start so younger kids can be told to run through these and not change lanes. Also starters must alert all athletes to run ( not jump ) through the gates without contacting them as they can be damaged. Finally we recommend only allowing track access via the large gates near the green shed as access from the finish line gate will be stopped when the carnival starts to prevent people from walking through the timing gates.
Compiling of results we can intergrate direct to Results HQ , meet manager or Sports app etc for a small cost . These allow pre population of events and make heats to final calculations much easier. They also make end of day results much easier to digest including the field results. Alternatively there are free excel or gooogle sheets templates online.
