Instructions for Track Events Records Application

All USATF rules must be followed. PRINT clearly in all fields (unless a signature is requested).  Though some fields are not required, every attempt should be made to complete all fields to ratify the record expeditiously. Most fields are self-explanatory, but some guidelines are below.

  1. Provide all the information for the athlete. Contact information is critical. More than 1 phone number or email address may be provided. If you’re completing this for a relay, provide the contact information for just one member of the relay team. Date of Birth is needed for all members of the relay. Club is optional.
  2. If it is a World Record, click that box. Otherwise, click the American box. The Age Group should be a multiple of 5, i.e., 35, 40, etc. The event should identify the athletic event the record was set in, i.e., 4×100 Relay or Shot Put. The hurdle height need only be provided for hurdle events.
  3. When you become a USATF Official, you are assigned a unique Official’s certification number, and all officials signing this form must provide that number.
  4. The official recorded time must comply with USATF rounding procedures.
  5. Self Explanatory.
  6. Some runways, tracks and throwing areas have slopes that are illegal, so facility compliance is crucial.
  7. The Hand Timing section is only required when FAT is not used for the event.
  8. Self Explanatory.
  9. Additional documentation may be submitted electronically.
    The Photo Finish and Zero Control Test (ZCT) can be obtained from the Automatic Timing crew. The Meet Program & results may be digital (or on a website). Provide a copy of your Birth Certificate.
