How are participants timed?

We will be using ChampionChip Electronic Timing System for this event. Please be aware of the following procedures to insure successful timing of your event: All participants will receive their timing chip on race morning at the Chip Pick-Up Area. You are REQUIRED to show your paper Bib number in order to receive your timing chip which you must wear on your ankle for the duration of the event. It is REQUIRED that all participants wear the timing chip on their ankle. How to wear the timing chip with the provided disposable strap:

Thread the strap through the timing chip
Place the strap around your ankle
Insert TWO (2) fingers between the medical strap and your ankle (to prevent the strap from being too tight)
Fasten the medical strap SECURELY.
You must return your chip at the finish line in order to receive your results. If you are not able to finish any leg of the race, you must turn in your timing chip as soon as possible at the finish line. If we do not receive your timing chip you will be charged to replace it.

Race Number

The race number you receive at packet pickup will be what you must wear during the race. The smallest number is the helmet number, the middle sized number is you run number, and the piece with your number on it twice is your bike number. While you have this number in print form you will also be receiving body marking on your calf, arm and hand.
Helmet Number – You will need to peel the sticker off of its protective paper and place it on the front of your helmet. Placing the number on the side of the helmet will make it harder for the USAT Officials, photographers, volunteers and race staff to identify you quickly so please be sure that you place the sticker on the front.

Bike Number – The bike number is the largest piece of paper. You will notice the the number is upside down at one end and right side up at the other. The reason for this print orientation is so that when the number is folded over the top tube of your bike your race number can be read easily from either side. There are two adhesive strips on the backside of the bike number. You will peel the protective paper off of the adhesive strips and then place the number on the top tube of your bike.

Run Number – The run number is the middle sized paper in you race number grouping. You will need to wear this number on the run course. This number MUST be on the front of you as you cross the finish line. You may use safety pins (provided at packet pick-up or chip pick-up) or a race belt to display the number on your front.

Body Marking – On race morning after you have affixed your assigned race number to your helmet, bike, and shirt/race belt you will then need to get your body marking done. The body marking station is located near the entrance to the Transition Area at the race site. Plan to bring your run number with you as you will need it to insure that the person body marking you is writing the correct number. The body marking will have your assigned race number on your upper left arm as well as on your right calf. You will also be marked on the back of you right calf with your age if you are racing in the Age Group division or with your race division if you are racing as a Relay. You will also be marked on your hand.

Transition Area

Triathletes may enter the transition area at 5:15am. Bike racks are numbered and triathletes must put their bicycles and gear in their designated bicycle location. All athletes must be out of transition area by 6:35am and ready for the pre- race briefing.
