Race Timing

The regular Beat the Heat 5K race will have chip recorded start and finish times. Results will be posted for both clock time and chip time, with the latter used for age group awards. The chip times are recorded by means of the RFID chip mounted on your numbered race bib.  Note:  PLEASE WEAR YOUR BIB ON THE FRONT OF YOUR SHIRT TO ALLOW A GOOD SIGNAL BETWEEN THE RFID CHIP AND READER.  

The USATF 5K Championship race will have a "gun start" and chip timed finish. This means that all participants will have the same start time and that the finish time will be recorded as each runner crosses the finish line. 

The One Mile Fun Run will have a clock at the finish line, but individual times are not recorded for this event.

Timing services will be provided by Twin City Track Club.
