ChronoTrack Timing and Scoring (B-Tag):

Transponder timing operated by RaceDC Timing will be used to score the 5K race. The system uses a computer "tag" that is attached to each runner’s bib so that it can record the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and the finish line. Overall awards will be based on clock time; age group awards will be based on transponder net times. Directions for wearing the B-Tag.


Awards

The top three male and female finishers overall receive awards. The first male and female finishers in these age groups also receive awards: 24 & under, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, and 55 and over.


Packet Pick Up

Race packets, t-shirts, bibs, and Chrono-Track B-Tags will be available at two locations:

Packet Pick Up #1:
Thursday, March 27th from 5:30 PM until 8 PM at Athleta, located at 3229 M Street, NW, Washington, DC 20007.
