Chip Timing Tutorial

Chip Timing is an important aspect of the race. It records your swim time, your bike time and your run time. It is a simple, comfortable strap-like device worn above your ankle. It is always worn on the left leg and chip timer should always face outward.

When registering for our event, you will receive a chip timer. Whatever your bib/race # is is also your chip timer #.

During a relay, the chip timer will be handed off from one person to the next (one leg to the next leg) and should be worn the same way for each person - left leg facing outward. It is also worn during the swim. Be sure to go over this with your relay partners before the race, to ensure there is no confusion when timing matters the most - on the race course!

Happy Racing!
