To make sure the timing is accurate and efficient at the VDO RunRider, we are pleased to confirm that we have upgraded the timing system and are using chip timing for this years event. Conventional manual timing requires a number of skilled and experienced operators and by its very nature is prone to errors, (as we found out last year!). Correcting these errors takes time and delays the production of the results and the prize list. Chip timing removes these errors by recording your race number and time as you cross the finish line and feeding them directly into the results system. Chips will be individually programmed to your race number and will need to be attached to your ankle via velcro strap (and NOT your shoe as per this photo!). You’ll be given your chip and velcro strap when you sign on at registration on Sunday morning and please remember to return it once you’re finished!
