The ChronoTrack B-Tag is used to time all participants.  The B-Tag is attached to the back of the race bib.

In order to insure an accurate  time, the bib must be:

  • Clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Unaltered or modified. Folding or wrinkling race bib may break the timing chip and result in no time collected
  • Pinned in all four corners so the timing chip stays flat.
  • Not covered with jackets, water bottles, or any other items, so the B-tag is not blocked.

In addition to ample street side parking there are several parking lots as noted on the map.  Please do not park in the Publix parking lot.  Any vehicles parked in the Publix parking is subject to towing.
