Professional timing services are being supplied by RaceDay Timing. They will use Chronotrack B-Tags, a proven technology for cycling event timing. The timing mechanism will be affixed to the back of the bike plate so make sure not to damage or bend yours. Please listen to the instructions for how to fix your bike plate to your bike when it’s given to you at package pickup. Results will be posted live on the website.
IMPORTANT: When attaching the bike plate to your bike, it’s VERY important to NOT bend the timing chips. Keep the bike plate as flat as possible and do not bend or fold the bike plate, otherwise you may break the timing chip and you will not receive an official time.
Be sure to smile for the cameras. Marathon Photos photographers will be positioned along the route taking stunning action photographs of every participant. Photos are available for purchase after the event.
