Many of you know that since we moved to the new online course certification process there is no longer any way for race directors to find a list of USATF course measurers near them who could measure their course. The new online system does provide a way to list everyone who has an account on the system, but unfortunately many people who are not course measurers created accounts. This means that anyone searching for a course measurer is confronted with a large list of names, with only a small number of those actually being course measurers. This issue is being addressed, and hopefully a solution will eventually be found.
An alternative way for race directors, or anyone, to find a measurer near their race location, is to use the Measurer Map. A link to this map can be found on the RRTC.net website in the list of Quick Links at the top of the page, where it says "Find a course measurer." A direct link to the map is also given below.
After you click on the link and the map is displayed, you can zoom in on your location to see all the course measurers nearby, with their locations displayed as red dots (or blue or green dots for World Athletics B and A measurers, respectively). If you hover over a dot, the name and the contact information for the measurer will appear. If you click on a dot, that same information will displayed in a small box. If a large city is displayed on the map make sure to zoom in fairly closely to prevent multiple measurer dots from obscuring each other.
Please make race directors you know, and others, aware of this tool for finding the locations of course measurers near them. And please make me aware of any mistakes you find in the information for a course measurer on the map, or anyone that you cannot find on the map who you know is a course measurer. Keep in mind though, that for a person to appear on the map as a course measurer they must have measured at least one course for USATF certification. You can let me know about mistakes or omissions by private messaging me on this forum, or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
