ChronoTrack Timing
Transponder timing provided by Amazing Race Timing will be used to score the 10K/5K races. The system uses the Chronotrack B-Tag which is attached to runners' bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and the finish line, resulting in a net time for each runner. The B-Tag is disposable. Overall awards will be based upon clock time and age group awards will be based upon transponder times.

- Skates and skateboards are never permitted on the course.
