i keep it very basic and use the single pt AF with one of the 15 x type sensors. not sure what you mean by tracking, but, choose the focus pt so that i can aim it at their bib number while still getting good framing. my main running lens is the 70-200 vr1.

i use the burst shooting and fire off 4-6 frames per pass, most are actually in focus, its just the framing is slightly different for each and of course they are moving so fast its good to have lots of options.
