When finishing, the runner or walker must have their race number visible on his/her chest. Without the number, they are not allowed into the finish area.

  1. Timing

Timing is done with electronic timing chips.

Disposable timing chips are attached to the reverse side of the race number. The chips will not be returned at the finish line.
