For the 50km and 100km, you will run a small out and back to get the mileage dialed in.
With that, note that the first lap of the 100km is a couple tenths of a mile longer than the 2nd lap. So when you finish your first lap, you only have to cross the timing mat under the arch, and head back out the straightaway you just came in from. Nothing extra is needed that 2nd lap.
