You may have noticed a few changes to the Sutton Runners website and has recently been highlighted in the Chairman’s weekly report. The main changes are the results data and how we publish it. There were technical difficulties with the old system that slowed the page down when loading data, especially at year end. There was no way of collating results effectively either as it was static. This new system brings together all your results and stats in one.
Some of the major features for registered members are:
As well as the above, the system also allows you to easily link to Garmin data if you regularly use your device for runs.
To get started you need to login to the Sutton Runners website. You may have noticed some new links at the very top of the home page (see pic). Due to security risks I have pre-registered your account and your username usually consists of full name with no spaces e.g. bobbuilder (unless you previously registered on the site). Contact the webmaster if you are unsure of your username. At this point you can either request a new password (should you have forgotten it) or choose one of the social media icons (e.g. facebook, twitter) to pass your details through.
Once logged in you will notice further links appear at the top of the home page. Choose Manage My Results to go to the main results panel. From here you can choose your own photo, select favourite event and hide Date of birth should you wish.
As well as all your results data you have further tabs for Personal Bests and Statistics. This will develop the more data that is entered to build up a picture of your race history. A search facility is located top right to allow you to look at other members data and compare, or simply search for a previous event. You will also notice a button to the far right of the panel which will allow you to add event data.
Adding Event Data
The event may already exist in the database; start typing the event name and select it if it appears in the drop down menu. Otherwise try to record the event details as accurate as possible; there is no requirement to put a date in the ‘event’ field as this is recorded separately. Should you have any difficulties with logging onto the website or using the system either speak to me direct or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Just a quick note for mobile users – the system is now optimized for our site and I have added the option to login to the Sutton Runners website to post your results if you wish. Once logged in, go to Menu – Results and choose Manage My Results from drop down menu. Tip – best done if you hold your phone landscape mode!
