|It's all about timing|
Yes. They are not intended to be disposable. You will be charged a fee if you do not return the timing chip. Volunteers will cut the zip ties after you finish the race and put the chips in a bucket. If you don't make it to the finish line, please send the chip to your race director or send it to us. Just place the chip in a regular envelope and drop it in the mail. Our address is:
1791 N. 500 E.
Provo, UT 84604
At the race you will received a plastic baggie, either stapled to the back of the bib or given to you when you get your bib. In the baggie you will find a timing chip and two zip-ties. The timing chip has four holes in it. Place the chip on top of your laces. Thread the zip ties through a hole in the chip, around a lace and back through a second hole in the chip. Complete the process by sliding the tip of the zip tie through its locking device. Give the zip tie a little tug as a check. Repeat for the second zip tie.
For shoes with velcro closures, simply run the zipties around the velcro strap. We suggest you attach the chip to the closure strap so that you can still open and close the velcro strap.
No worries here!. The chip is the orange ring on the back of your bib. You simply need to attach the bib to your shirt with safety pins. Be sure that you don't fold or damage the chip. The orange ring contains little copper wires that serve as the chip's antenna. If you break the little copper wires, the chip will be useless. So don't fold, spindle, or mutilate the orange ring. We prefer that you wear the bib on your front so that your race number can be seen.
No, they are disposable. If you are sensitive to e-waste, look for our bib recycle boxes near the finish line. We will take care of the chips
