5K ChronoTrack Timing Tags

The Gasparilla Distance Classic Association is once again proud to lead the pack in offering to its runners and walkers the latest in timing technology. In 2021, race participants will once again be timed utilizing the ChronoTrack B-Tag Timing System, developed and designed with RFID – radio frequency identification.

Here’s how it works. The technology is woven into a tag that will be placed on the back of each runner’s bib/race number.

Transponder pads at the Start Line and Finish Line will record the participant’s time at each location in preparation for the Tampa Bay Times Race Weekend Results. Post-Race, each participant will receive both their Clock Time and Net Time (Timing that begins when the participant actually crosses the Start Line Transponder Pad and ends upon crossing the Finish Line Transponder Pad.)

At the Finish Line, there will be no back-ups…runners and walkers will cross the Finish Line…revel in what they’ve just accomplished…be given their Finisher’s Medal and then head to the Q105 Post-Race Celebration!

PLEASE NOTE – Overall Results (Top 5) will be according to the order of finish; Age Group Results will be according to Net Time.

PLEASE NOTE – If you intend to run the 15K AND 5K on Saturday, February 20, 2021, you must register and complete an Entry Form for both events.  Unless you are running the Michelob Ultra Challenge, you will be issued a 15K Race Number AND a 5K Race Number. When running the 15K, you MUST wear your assigned 15K Race Number ONLY.  Do not wear or carry your 5K Bib Number.  Before starting the 5K, YOU MUST remove your 15K Race Number and replace with your 5K Race Number. Because of the sensitivity of the Chrono Track Timing Device, wearing or carrying your 5K Rae Number during the 15K OR wearing or carrying your 15K Race Number during the 5K could impact your Tampa Bay Times Race Weekend Results.

PLEASE NOTE – If you intend to run the 15K & 5K AND participate in the 5K Stroller Roll or 5K Walk on Saturday, February 20, 2021, you must register and complete an Entry Form for each event. When running the 15K, you MUST wear your assigned 15K Race Number ONLY.  DO NOT wear or carry your 5K Race Number(s).  Before starting the 5K Run, you must remove your 15K Race Number and replace with your 5K Race Number. If applicable, before starting the 5K Stroller Roll or 5K Walk, you must remove your 5K Run Race Number and replace with your assigned 5K Stroller Roll or 5K Walk Race Number.
