Go to - Click Online Entry


If there are multiple races at the meet you are entering. You will just enter them into the race listed and we will separate them on race day. This way you will not have to specify a varsity and reserve team ahead of time. Example: If the meet you are entering is having a varsity and reserve race for high school

then on the entry website there will only be one race listed. Enter all your athletes into this one and then on race day determine your varsity and reserve and run the race. We will then scratch the remaining athletes from the varsity race and they will be in the reserve race.

Milesplit Questions

Coaches, Athletes, Parents, and Fans

This is to explain why our results are not formatted to Milesplits site.  First of all Finishtiming is not associated with Milesplit.  It is not our responsibility to provide results to them for their use.  They are a pay site and have people pay them to see their rankings and they use (steal) results from timers.  They figure putting our logo on the results is enough compensation for our work and then if we do not they tell all the coaches and parents to call and email us to ask why (thinking this will make us give them what they want). 

We used to provide them with our results as a courtesy until we started getting calls and coaches coming to us (at the meet) saying our results were not right.  They were already posted to milesplit before we were even done with the meet. 

We have sponsors also that need to have traffic driven to them, so if everyone was going straight to milesplit then we were missing those people.  We worked a deal with milesplit that they were to hold results for 48 hours and we would provide them with all results.  They were told as soon as a result was posted before the 48 hour period it was over.  It took approximately 1 week for them to break this agreement.  We spent a lot of money to make our live results system work the way it does and it is a very easy system to use with mobile device or computer and is very fast.  All meets that use our online entry system and use hytek to score their meet can see a complete rankings list at .  Our rankings site is free and coaches can add their athletes times even if they were not timed by us, by simply logging in and entering a leader entry. 

We are a business and we have tried to add more and more experiences to the meets to make them more exciting for the fans and athletes alike.  We have more items available to you than most do and have always added these things without raising prices for 15 years.  We have started to get sponsors to help with our rising costs and if we give our results to another company this defeats our sponsorship.

Online Registration System
Coaches the registration system we used last year is the same for this year but we have erased all accounts.  The athletes are still there just your account is gone.  We had too many coaches signing up with thewrong team.  There is now a question for you as to which team you are coach for (HS or MS).  Make sure you look for your school in the list before trying to add one.  Most every school in the OHSAA directory is listed.  
If you are a fan or parent or athlete there is no need for you to create an account so please do not do so.
