This year's event will be timed by Chip style computer timing. You will receive your running chip when you check in at packet pick up and you will be instructed on how to attach it to your shoe lace. These chips must be returned on race day immediately after race completion. There will be a $25.00 charge for anyone who does not return a chip, sorry, no exceptions. This can be avoided simply by doing the following:
  • Make sure to have your race chip on at the start of the race, no chip....no time.
  • Place your chip in the proper body placement (usually shoe lace or ankle).
  • Do not trade your chip with another participant.
  • Do not cross Start line prior to race start.
  • Do not cross finish line twice.
