Time Chip Rules
At registration you will be given an envelope containing your
assigned bib number and corresponding computer chip. Both of these
items are to be worn throughout the entire race. The envelope
is printed with important instructions for proper chip use. If
you register for the race but decide not to participate, please
return your chip to registration or finish line volunteers.
The computer chip comes attached to an adjustable Velcro band.
DO NOT REMOVE THE CHIP FROM THE BAND.
The band must be worn around your ankle for the entire event.
All chips MUST be returned to us once you cross the finish line.
Special mats will be placed at the finish line. You must cross
over the mats to receive accurate times. IF
YOU DO NOT WEAR THE CHIP OR DO NOT CROSS OVER THE MATS, YOU WILL
NOT RECEIVE A TIME. All awards will be given according
to official gun time because USAT&F currently only recognizes
official gun time for records, rankings, etc.
Athletes who do not return their assigned chip will be expected
to pay a $30.00 replacement cost. If you forget to turn in your
chip on race day, please mail it back immediately to: Bay State
Race Services, 12 Piper Glen Ln, Haverhill, MA 01832-3809.
