Timing and Results

Official Overall and Age Group Awards will be based upon the "gun time" per USATF Rule 245. Individual "chip times" will be available online at the conclusion of the event.

In order to be timed please follow these simple instructions carefully.

• DO NOT bend, fold, crumple, mutilate or modify your race bib in any manner.

• Wear your race bib on the front of your shirt; on the outer most layer of clothing.

• This bib must be worn at all times during the race.

• Not wearing the bib properly may prevent you from being timed and therefore being shown in the results.

• Bibs are non-transferable! Be careful not to switch with friends, family, teammates, etc.

• If the race has multiple distances, participate in the distance for which you are registered.

• Make sure you cross the timing points at the start, intervals (if any), and finish of the race.
