Timing and Results

All participants in the race will receive a timing chip attached to the race bib. As you cross the electronic mats at the start and finish lines, the timing tag emits a unique signal that allows the system to identify you and calculate your finish time. You must be wearing your timing chip on your bib number to receive a race time.  Results will be posted on the Abilene Runner’s Club Website (www.abilenerunners.com).
