Coros $200,022 Worlds Track and Field Prediction Contest

July 11, 2022

The World Outdoor Track and Field Champs are almost here. They start this Friday in Eugene, Oregon, taking place in the US for the first time ever.

The Coros $200,022 Prediction Contest takes Worlds and being a track and field fan to another level.

The contest is very simple. You pick the top 3 in all the running events. You get points for how many picks you get correctly. We score your picks and determine a winner. You don’t need a lot of knowledge of track and field to play and we encourage you to invite your friends to play in a group.

We give you a list of the top entrants with a picking guide, so everyone has a chance. A 13-year-old won our Marathon Trials contest.

With Worlds being in the US, thanks to Coros we took the prizes to the next level.

We have a feature that allows you to change your picks up until about 10 minutes before a particular event is scheduled to start. We are not closing any picks until 8:15pm eastern on Friday (so you can pick the mixed relay 4×400 after the first round has taken place)

Also, you don’t have to fill in all of your picks at once.

The scoring is as follows:

  • Each person that you correctly pick to finish in the top 3 = 1 point.
    It doesn’t matter if you actually get the pick exactly right. If you pick someone for 1st and they finish 3rd you still get the point. Vice versa is true as well. If you pick them to get third and they get third, it’s still only one point.
  • Each event winner picked correctly = 3 more points (you pick someone for first and they get first, that’s 4 total points).
  • Each event picked perfectly – All three picks: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the right order = 2 more points (here the order is key).

Do you understand the rules fully? The following example should explain any questions you have. If you pick 1st, 2nd, and 3rd correctly in any event in the proper order, it is 3 points (1 point for each person in the top 3) + 3 points (for getting the winner correct) + 2 points (bonus for perfect pick of top 3 in order) = 8 points.

The more points, the better.

Play in a Group vs. Your Friends

In our contest, you can create your own group and play against your friends.


Oh yeah, only one entry per person. No computerized/mechanical entries. We’re sure we should have a bunch of legal stuff here. How about this: your picks and your login name are not private and may be displayed on our website. And we’re not responsible if the free contest gets cancelled for any reason including if our database crashes. If the contest is cancelled, the prizes will not be awarded. We’ll do our best to keep everything running smoothly. The top 3 in any event are final when we determine them at the end of the meet and this may not be the ultimate final top 3 (mainly due to drug busts in the future). Additionally, this contest is obviously void where prohibited by law – which states and countries that is, we don’t know. Also you need to be of the right minimum age, which we’ll say is 15 to be safe. No purchase necessary. And yes, we can win our own contest. If we beat you, you’ll hear about it for sure. The $200,022 prize is the sole responsibility of

This contest is in no way affiliated with World Athletics.

*And we’ll try to keep events open until 10 minutes before each event, but we’re not guaranteeing anything.

Please note: For tie-breaking purposes, we’ll first look at the number of 1st places correctly chosen. If there’s still a tie, we’ll look at the number of 2nd places correctly chosen, and then if need be, the number of 3rd places correctly chosen. If there still is a tie, we’ll conduct a random drawing.
