-Chip Removal will be done by the schools themselves, there will be no workers cutting off chips at the finish line. Runners will finish each race and then exit out of the chute and will remove the chips when they can accordingly to each school’s Coach. Each school’s Coach is responsible for returning their team’s chips to the chip timing trailer following their races. Your school will be billed for any unreturned chips!!!
Awards:-Race results can be found live online at race-wizard.com. -Since chip timing is being used, please check the results when they are available to make sure all your runners’ chips read properly across the finish mat and that they are in the results. If you find that a runner is missing please see the finish timing judge to make this correction-
