TIMING/RESULTS

When and where will results be posted?
Results will be posted on our website following the race.

Could there be a discrepancy between the chip time and my GPS?
Yes, there could be; a distance discrepancy could be the results of a number of things: Runners may add distance by starting back of the start line, tend to take longer turns, water stops, inexperience of the course, softer side on the roadway or not consistently running a straight line.
Consumer grade GPS units take readings which can be plotted on a graph, the readings can be every 1 to 20 seconds. The readings are affected by satellite position, signal noise, natural barriers or where/how your GPS unit is held (e.g. on your arm). GPS units are listed as accurate within 3-10m, this applies throughout the course of readings. Road race courses are measured using a calibrated mechanical counter measuring the ‘shortest possible route’ (SPR). Multiple measures are compared to ensure accuracy. Over the total distance it is common to have a GPS register a distance longer than the measured distance.

How long do I have to complete my race?
The roads will be completely open to traffic by 12pm noon.
