It looks like there will be 24 qualifiers per event at this years Indoor State championships. Can someone give some insight on the number of heats OATCCC is planning on having in each event? Even 2 heats of 12 in an 800m is too much but the schedule doesn’t seem to leave enough time to accommodate 3 heats. And will the heats be determined by qualifying times?

@nbrannen Nate, I've reached out to Jeff Sheets and Diane Krumpak of the OATCCC and asked them to contact you to provide updates on your inquiries. I've shared your e-mail address with them. Once they've contacted you, please feel free to share those updates on this thread, so everyone is kept in the loop. Thanks, M. Dwyer

As for the distance events, it looks like the 800m and 4x800m with be contested in 2 heats of 12 with the top 12 in 1 heat and the bottom 12 in the next heat. The 1600m and 3200m with be a straight final with 24 runners in each race.

@nbrannen don't you think running 24 kids in the 1600 is a little dangerous? There is definitely going to be a lot of pushing and shoving for position

Yes, 100%. I brought that up and said I’ve never seen a championship race with 24 runners on the line and I was told they did it last year and it worked out fine. Which they didn’t, this is the first year with 24 qualifiers in the distance races, aside from the 3200 which did have 24 qualifiers last year. I think they’re asking for trouble starting a race with that many runners, especially a 1600.

@nbrannen I absolutely agree. It's not going to be racing. Most of the kids are at the same times. Some are going to get boxed in. Kids are going to be zig-zagging for positions. It's not a good idea especially for the 1600 with aggressive kids! Run 12 and 12. Sprinters have heats and space to race. Give the same chance to the distance kids.

To be fair, they did run accept 24 entries in all events last year. It looks like in the 1600 only 20 ran, for some reason 4 didn't run. I do remember the accepted entries having 24 athletes though. I had a runner in the 1600 - it was busy, there was shoving, but after about 600m it was fine. Not ideal by any means, but it was honestly not as bad as you might think. The 800 was perfectly fine with 2 heats of 12. We run 16 at regionals and 18 at state, so I don't see the issue there.

OATCCC web page says the password should be your OATCCC account number. It does not work.
