All races (except The Hill Country Trivium) will be chip timed. Chips will be picked up at packet pickup & 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 & B-Tag is only used for splits & 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 & we won't go looking for you all day & 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 alerts us to your presence. Picking up your packet DOES NOT mean you started the race. The pre-race check-in (i.e. walking over the mat with your chip/B-tag) will let us know you are out there on the course. This is very important for your safety & the safety of our volunteers & personnel, as the venue expects us to be keenly aware of this information.
