RESULTS
Each racer will receive an index card in the finish chute upon completion of their race.  We will collect cards of the TOP 15 Finishers in each heat/grade/gender.  The card will indicate their placement on the results. 

Coaches Instructions for TOP 15 Finishers: 

 

1.  Collect cards earned by members of your team immediately.

3.  Turn in to the Race Officials immediately following each heat so that results can be calculated in a timely manner.

Names of top 15 finishers will be listed on results. All finish times will be posted and coaches may use the place cards to determine each student’s finish time. To see an example from prior years:  http://www.chattanoogatrackclub.org/raceResults/results/raceResults_661.pdf
