RACE NUMBER AND TIMING

Race number and timing tag

Affix the number to the front of your shirt. Your number must be visible at the start, finish and all points on the course to prevent being disqualified or asked to leave. Please do not fold or cut your number.

To receive an accurate time, please confirm your race number is:

  • Clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Unaltered and unmodified (do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Pinned in all four corners
  • Not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

IMPORTANT: Your B-tag is affixed to the back of your race number. It is not to be removed for any reason. If your B-tag is not worn properly throughout the race, you will not receive an official time.

 

Official timing

We use two timing methods:

  • gun time – the time it takes you to finish the race based on when the start gun is fired
  • chip time – the time it takes you to finish the race based on when you cross the start line

All race numbers feature a personalized QR code for each participant. Official results for the open (overall) division in the marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K will be based on the actual order of finish (gun time). All other results, including award trophies and plaques, will be based on B-tag time (chip time). B-tag time is defined as the duration of time from the moment a runner crosses the mats at the start until the moment that runner crosses the mats at the finish.
