What To Know About Your Bib

  • The ChronoTrack B-Tag® affixed to the back of your bib is your running timing device for this event. This is a single use bib tag.
  • Your bib MUST be clearly visible and worn on the front and outside of all clothing during the entire race.
  • Do NOT alter, fold or wrinkle the bib in any way.
  • You must securely fasten your bib to the front of your running outfit with the safety pins provided.
  • Tags are non-transferable and MUST be worn by only the participant to whom they are assigned.
  • Participants MUST cross the start line during the official start time. Participants who begin before the official start or cross after the ChronoTrack B-Tag® starting mats have been removed will not receive an official time.

Chip Timing

Participants will receive the ChronoTrack B-Tag® timing tag with your race bib. The lightweight timing tag stays attached to the back of the race bib and does not get removed. The timing tag precisely records each runner’s clock time and chip time.
