Scoring           

 

Since tables don’t exist for some events and age groups, our scoring reverts to individual places.  Each athlete is ranked as to his/her finish in an event (1st = 1, 2nd = 2, 3rd = 3, etc.)  Adding up the points across events, the lowest point total wins, the next lowest point total is 2nd, etc.  Tie breakers are (1) best place in an athlete’s worst finishing event (2) best place in athlete’s 2nd worst finishing event –> 7th event) (3) finish in the 100 meter dash. Athletes must compete in each event to finish the multi-event. Athletes are considered to have competed in an event even if they foul out or don’t complete a successful jump in the high jump.


Fee           

 

The extra fee for entering a multi-event is $12 prior to the meet and $15 at the meet.

 

Awards           

ALL multi-event competitors will receive trophies (larger trophies for better finishes).  Athletes are also eligible for awards in any of the individual events that make up the pentathlon or heptathlon.

 

800          

In order to spread out the events in the heptathlon, we run the 800s on Friday night, rather than on Saturday when other athletes compete in these events.  The results of the 800  on Friday night will be merged with the Saturday results of this events to determine the final standings.

Team Scoring           

Individual event finishes count toward team results, but pentathlon / heptathlon finishes do not.

 

Field Event Priority           

Multi-event athletes may be given preference in order of competition in some field events in order to complete all their events.

 

Conflicts           

Multi-event athletes may compete in events outside of their multi-event. However, conflicts may prevent their competition is some of the other events of completing the final in some events.

 

Coach / Parent Role           

A coach or parent should monitor each multi-athlete to ensure they arrive at each event in a timely fashion.

 

Multi-Event Officials           

We will have several meet officials devoted entirely to the multi-events. It’s important for all the follow their directions.
