All races (except The Hill Country Trivium) will be chip timed. Chips will be picked up at packet pickup and must be worn on your ankle during the race. Ankle straps will be available for all runners. Wear your chip correctly to ensure the system can read it.
B-Tag Timing: The Hill Country Trivium uses a disposable RFID tag that adheres to the back of a participants race bib number to record their time. Wear you race bib correctly to ensure the system can read it.
Note: start time is reference to race start. The chip and B-Tag is only used for splits and finish time.
DNF, Quitting, Not-Finishing, Leaving the Course, Stopping, Timing Out
If you leave the race for any reason before completing the full race distance, you must TURN IN YOUR CHIP or B-TAG BIB. If we have your CHIP or B-TAG BIB, then we know you have left the course, and we won't go looking for you all day and night.
Split Time Collection
Some races will have mid-point reads to help us track progress during the race. If you see a timing mat on the course, make sure you run over it.
All runners must check in prior to starting (at the start line) by walking over the mat either before the race or at the start of the race. This allows us to know you actually showed up. Picking up your packet does not mean you started the race. We need to know you are out there on the trails. That is what the pre-race check in is for. This is very important, the venue expects us to know this info.
