MyLaps Bibtag Timing Chip By Revolution3 Timing:
Bibtag timing operated by Revolution3 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. All awards will be based on clock time.
The top three male and female finishers overall receive awards. The first male and female finishers in these age groups also receive awards: 8 & under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, and 61 and over. The top three male and female Janney Elementary students will also receive an award.
Packet Pick Up
Race packets, t-shirts, bibs, and Chrono-Track B-Tags will be available at two locations prior to Race Day, and at Janney Elementary School the day of the race.
Picking Up for Your Family and Friends
Runners can pick up bibs and t-shirts for their friends.
Street parking is available in the neighborhoods surrounding Janney Elementary School.
The closest Metro stop to American University is Tenleytown/AU on the Red Line, which is less than a mile from the campus.
