Race timings will be recorded by MYLAPS Tag, an electronic race timing system with an accuracy up to a hundredth of a second.

Participants who register for the 42.195KM Full Marathon, 21.1KM Half Marathon and 10KM Challenge race category will be timed using the MYLAPS Tag electronic race timing system.

If you are using the MYLAPS Tag, please ensure the following in order to receive an accurate time.

– Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso

– Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (do not fold or wrinkle)

– Race bib is pinned in all four corners

– Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

Participants will be granted access to their personal race results (Gun Time and Chip Time), as captured by the timing system on the race website 48 hours after the last cut-off time.

“Gun Time” (still officially accepted by the IAAF as the valid mode of measuring running time) includes whatever distance you had covered before you actually reached the start line. Official results are based on the Gun Time, i.e. prize rankings are according to the Gun time.

The IPICO electronic race timing system eliminates that major issue of inaccurate timing and gives you your “Net Time”.

First aiders will be deployed along the route. Participants who are in need of immediate attention can also alert the route marshals.

Yes there are several cut off points along the route for different categories. Participants who fail to meet the cut off timing will be asked to board the sweeper bus.
