Do I Need to Be Able to Navigate/Read A Map?

Where Can I Find the Race Maps?

How is the event timed?

Each participant will have their own personal timing chip known as a “bib number”. This is worn at all times, unless you are swimming, and is used to check in at the designated checkpoints. At the race end you will almost instantly get a summary of your various times and splits for each section.

Do I need to wear the chip for the entire race?

Yes, timing mats will be set up to record splits for each leg and transition. If you do not have the chip on when you cross the finish line you are not guaranteed a finish time.

Where do I wear the chip?

Your timing chip is built-in to your bib number and is usually worn on the upper body.

If your event consists of the swim section, please do not wear your bib number in the water. Don’t worry, we will still record your time.
