Your time will be recorded by a timing transponder pre-attached to the rear of your race number. Please ensure you firmly attach your race number to your chest and wear it for the entirety of the event.
Once you receive your race number, please ensure you do not bend or expose it to excessive heat. If you think your transponder may be damaged, please present it at the RunWest Expo for exchange.
Your personal transponder will be activated once you cross the start line, and your finishing time will be recorded as you cross the finish line. Results will be available as they happen on the RunWest website.
