Timing Chips

If you do forget your timing band, please report to the Transition Help Desk on race morning before the race, as you will need to be reissued with a whole new timing band & race number. You will be required to pay a $150 fee if timing chip is lost or not returned. If you withdraw from the race please inform Event Information and return your timing band.

Timing results will include swim split, cycle split, run split and finish time as well as overall and category places.
