Track Starter's Guide.
Dailey, Charles H.; Rankin, Kelly D.
This guide was developed to serve both the novice and experienced starter in track and field events. Each year in the United States, runners encounter dozens of different starters' mannerisms as they travel to track meets in various towns and states. The goal of any competent and conscientious starter is to insure that all runners receive a fair and equal start for each race they run. There are four sections to this guide: (1) introduction; (2) history of starting; (3) techniques of starting; and (4) bibliography. Appendices contain checklists for field authorities, starter and recall starter's equipment, constructing starter holes, comparison of time and distance for meters and yards, and converting feet into meters.
