Timing Information

Your Timing Device for this event is the ChronoTrack B-Tag: A single use bib tag.

Race timing

The Technology

The ChronoTrack® Timing System is an innovation that allows for the use of disposable tags called B-Tags. One of the many goals of the ChronoTrack® system is to simplify the timing process for athletes. A disposable tag eliminates the need for the athlete to worry about turning your chip in after the race and allows you to spend more time focusing on competing. Shorter lines before the race to pick up your bib and chip and no line to return your tag or chip afterward are just some of the benefits to the ChronoTrack® system.

The B-Tag comes already attached to the back of your bib and is far lighter and less intrusive than other timing tags and chips. By placing your bib on the front of your body, you will receive an accurate time and quickly forget that it is even there!

The "Green" Process

The B-Tag is a standard RFID tag that is landfill safe. Key Benefits:

  • Disposable tag
  • Accurate time
  • No fees for lost or unreturned tags
  • Less hassle post race
  • Lighter, less intrusive tag
  • No pre-race check-in
  • No post-race tag turn-in

In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is...

  • Clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Pinned in all four corners
  • Not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

Charities

Colorado Rockies Foundation

The Rockies Charity Fund

The Colorado Rockies Charities are the combined charitable efforts of the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation and the Colorado Rockies Charity Fund (a fund of the McCormick Foundation) that have been making a difference in our Colorado communities for over twenty-one years. Since their inception, the Colorado Rockies Charities have contributed more than $23 million to community programs in the Rocky Mountain region.

The primary focus of the Colorado Rockies Charities is to benefit underprivileged and at-risk youth. Through programs for youth baseball and softball, youth education, child abuse prevention and health the Rockies Charities allow the Rockies organization to reach out to local youth with positive messages and to promote good citizenship through the medium of sport. We invite you to help make a difference by participating in the Home Run for the Homeless in 2015.
