Timing/Results

Is the Carrollton Half Marathon and Half Marathon relay a timed event? Yes, The MYLAPS Bib-Tag affixed to the back of your bib is your timing device for this event. This is a single-use bib tag. The lightweight timing tag must not be removed. The timing tag precisely records each runner’s gun time and chip time. Participants MUST cross the start line during the official start time. Participants who begin before the official start or cross after the start timing mats have been removed will not receive an official time. Your bib MUST be clearly visible and worn on the front and outside of all clothing during the entire race. Do not cover your bib with any layers, including a fuel belt. Do not alter, fold or wrinkle the bib in any way. Participants with missing or irregular split times at official timing checkpoints will be reviewed and may be disqualified.

When will race results be posted? Unofficial race results will be posted at runcarrollton.com by the afternoon of Sunday, September 8th. Results inquiries will be accepted up to 2 weeks after the event at which time they will be made official. For questions about your results, email westgeorgiatrackclub@gmail.com and include your name, and bib number.

Why do my results show two different times? What is chip time vs. gun time? Chip time is the actual amount of time it takes a runner to go from the start timing mats of a race to the finish timing mats. Chip time is recorded using the MYLAPS Bib Tag affixed to the back of your bib. This is why it is important you wear your bib correctly. Gun time is the amount of time it takes a runner to finish the race from the moment the gun (or horn) went off.

Why do the official results show me running slower than the time I recorded on my watch? The quality of different GPS units can vary, but all of them can be affected by conditions such as buildings or large crowds which can interfere with the reception of satellite signals and cause them to be inaccurate. The chip time is your official time.

Why are overall standings based on gun time while age group standings are based on chip time? As a USATF sanctioned event, the West Georgia Track Club follows their guidelines in determining standings within the different divisions. Our overall categories include open male and female, masters male and female, and grandmasters male and female. Per USATF policy, overall standings are ranked off of gun time, the order in which participants crossed the finish line. Age group standings are ranked by chip time. If you look at your individual ChronoTrack results you are able to see both gun and chip time. If you sort it by the different divisions, you will see your time listed based off how that category is ranked.

What time does the event start? 7:30 a.m.
