Will I get a time for my Half Marathon run?

Yes the event will be accurately chip timed.

What does ‘chip timed’ mean?

A magnetic strip, (the chip), will be given to you, to attach to your shoe before the start of the run. Readers inside the start/finish mats report the time of day you crossed. Subtracting your finish time from your start time gives the timers your net time.

Who will be timing the event?
