FAQs - Timing
How is Run for the Kids timed?
All entrants are issues with a numbered timing tag that matches their race number. When you cross the start line, your tag will register that you have started the Race, and when you cross the finish line, your tag will register that you have finished the Race. These times are recorded and your net race time is calculated.
How do I attach my timing tag?
Please ensure that you attached your timing tag to your race shoes, before you leave home on race day. Please use the two ties provided in your race kit to attach your timing tag to your shoe, as per the picture below. Please note that your time will not be recorded if you attach the tie anywhere else on your body, so please ensure is securely fastened to your shoes.
Do I have to return the timing tag that is issued to me?
Yes. Timing tags are issued to you on the understanding that if you do not return the tag, you will be required to pay for a replacement of the tag, and will be issued with an invoice for $50. ALL timing tags must be returned by April 4, 2013.
