    800 Start for Finals

    According to the CIF Playoff Bulletin, the 800 and 1600 races are supposed to be run in alleys, only if the number of competitors exceeds the number of lanes of the track where Finals is being run at. Given the fact that Finals is always a 9-lane track, doesn't this mean that both races should start in lanes and then break at the turn? Is this how it's going to be done at Finals?

    We can run it in lanes for the first turn since there are only nine.

    But are we actually going to? And if so, is it seeded same as the other laned races? Also, is this only the 800, or will this happen in the 1600 as well?

    Thanks Hal.

    The 1600 will be run from a waterfall start. Seeded from the outside in, not the same as races run entirely run in lanes.
