Claiming an Athlete

After creating a Milesplit account, you have the ability to "claim" an athlete. Claiming an athlete gives you the ability to edit certain information and settings, as well as adding a picture to the athlete's profile. Claiming an athlete is intended for either the athlete themselves, or the athlete's parent/guardian and is subject to approval. Follow these steps to claim an athlete:
  • After logging in to your Milesplit account, use the search functionality to look up the desired athlete.
