Race Timing

We use a disposable chip timing tag for the 4-Mile & 7-Mile that runners receive at packet pick up on the back of their race bibs. It is a lightweight-foam backed chip and remains attached to the race bib. 
Runners MUST wear their race bibs on the front of their clothing in order to be timed accurately. The bib cannot be covered, holding it in your hand or putting it in your pocket will NOT read the chip. Do not bend the chip.  Smart watches such as Garmin and smart phones can interfere with the timing chip frequency.  Please do not adjust your watch or phone as you cross the finish line and come through the chute.  Disputes for times on Smart watches and smart phones will not be taken into consideration.
