The BibTag timing system will enable you to receive your official time (time from the starter's gun), as well as your net running time. The BibTag is affixed to your bib number and must be worn on your outer layer for the entire race for you to be scored and timed and for you to appear among the results as an official finisher. Please handle the tag with care, as bent or damaged tags may not work correctly.

 

A:

Timing will conclude three hours after the official start. Official participants have three hours (3:00:00) net time to complete the race. Only participants who complete the race within this allotted time will be considered official finishers. Roads and paths along the route will begin to reopen to traffic prior to the conclusion of timing and scoring, and those remaining on the course will be directed off the roadways and on to walkways by local police.
