Varsity race intermediate results at 1500 and 3200 meters are now posted for both 4A/5A and 2A/3A. These intermediate results also include team scoring so that it's easy to see how your team score "moved" as the races developed. If people tell me they really want to see this for their JV runners, I can do it there as well.

Alan - were the 1500 and 3200 marks out on the football field? I never saw timing pads on the course. Thanks.

@plilly I never saw them either, but if you watch the video (which was shot from overhead), you can clearly see the pads on the middle of the football field where nobody but runners had access. The same set of pads did the 1500 and 3200 intervals. I'm guessing that 1500 and 3200 are rough estimates and not close enough to do any precise pace timing. I found it very useful to track the placing of my runners through the races, though.

I'm not sure the 1500 and 3200 timing pads were rough estimates. It would be interesting for Mark to chime in on that. If you project mile pacing off the splits, it looks very close to splits I took at where I estimated the mile points to be.

1 mile is just past the exit of the north end of the track on the first loop. The 1500 and 2 mile (not 3200 haha) are exact depending on what wheel you use. On the wheel we used, those were exact marks measuring on 8/30/13. The 1500 split was used instead of 1 mile for complicated chip timing interference issues that Benji Durden can explain better than me. I hope that helps answer questions.

NY cross country guru Bill Meylan did speed ratings for St. Vrain invite. 144 for Rainsberger seems about right if you are familiar with speed ratings. I bet he will do liberty bell as well. Check them out here: http://tullyrunners.com/XC2013/Ratings_Sept7.htm#Vrain

Gebrakidane got 199 which is probably the highest speed rating in the country right now. Which seems just about right.
