The New Hampshire records posted on this site are maintained
in accordance with USATF Rules 128 and 165. In order for the race
results to be considered for NH State records, there must be at
least two and preferably three watches used to time the winner
of the race. Times on those watches must be recorded in at least
a tenth of a second. The actual winning time is the middle of
the three or the slower of the two watches. The time must then
be rounded up to the next full second. When an electronic timing
machine is used as the primary timer, all times can be automatically
adjusted by correcting the winning time. This requirement insures
that all records use the same rounding criteria, and therefore
when a record is broken by one second, it really is. In addition
to the timing requirements, the race must be run on a currently
certified course with a drop of less than one meter per kilometer.
The one exception to the drop rule is the Demar Marathon, where
times are used for State records.
The latest revision to the rules now allows Chip timing to be used for single age records as long as the mats are placed correctly at the start and finish and the Chip time is properly rounded.
In order to insure that these requirements are met, the Race
Director must submit a copy of the results and a copy of the USATF
Application for The Recognition Of Road Race Performances to the
State Record Keeper for his review and permanent files. The Race
Director should also send a set to The National Records Center,
where the National Rankings are kept. This paper documentation
is important, as there are occasions when older records are questioned
and the source material is available if corrections are necessary.
Virtually all of the races timed by Granite State Race Services,
are submitted to both the State Record Keeper and to National
by the Race Director and are used for record purposes. In the
vast majority of the New Hampshire races that are timed by other
timing services, this information is not submitted and times and
rankings can not be used unless the necessary documentation is
forwarded to the State Record Keeper.
