    Creating a multi input form Link to this post

    Wasnt sure what to put as the title of this post, i have a form that needs to contain the same field 4 or 5 times, its for logging in a runner at a checkpoint and rather than just adding one record at a time i'd like to be able to add 4 or 5. I have got this to work by creating my form in HTML then processing with silverstripe as normal but i wondered if there is a way to create the form using the normal silverstripe coding way. does this make sense? anyway here is my form and the function to process just wondered if anyone new how i could do this without adding the html to page and just add it to mu controller.

    <form id="signin" method="post" action="checkpoint/dosignin">
    <div class="large-5 medium-5 small-12 columns continuing">
    <h4 class="black">Continuing Checkpoint <% with getCheckpoint %>$Name<% end_with %></h4>
    <hr />
    <input type="number" placeholder="Runners Number" name="RunnerNumber[]" id="RunnerNumber" >
    <input type="number" placeholder="Runners Number" name="RunnerNumber[]" id="RunnerNumber" >
    <input type="number" placeholder="Runners Number" name="RunnerNumber[]" id="RunnerNumber" >
    <input type="number" placeholder="Runners Number" name="RunnerNumber[]" id="RunnerNumber" >
    <input type="hidden" name="CheckpointID" id="CheckpointID" value="<% with getCheckpoint %>$ID<% end_with %>"/>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" id="submit" class="small button success radius" value="Runner Check in"/>
    </div>
    </form>

    function dosignin(){
          $theID = $_POST["CheckpointID"];
          $in = date("Y-m-d H:i:s");
          for($i = 0; $i < 4; $i++)   {
             $RunnerNum   = $_POST["RunnerNumber"][$i];
             if($RunnerNum){
                $therunner = Runner::get()->filter(array('RaceNumber' => $RunnerNum))->first();
                $runID = $therunner->ID;
                $submission = new Checkin();
                $submission->CheckpointID = $theID;
                $submission->RunnerID = $runID;
                $submission->TheTime = $in;
                $submission->Status = 'yes';
                $submission ->write();
             }
          }
          Controller::curr()->redirectBack();
       }

    cheers
