Full Race Scoring Services with Chips

No New Races

Due to lack of knowledgeable volunteers we are only scoring races that have been timed by us before, .i.e we are not taking new races. The discription is left here as reference for those races we still time.

Chip Handling

Chips are the re-usable variety. We prefer to distribute them near the start beginning an hour or two prior to start. At packet pickup or late registration each runner gets a bib with the runner's name as usual. The bib is the ticket to get the chip with the same number. This helps assure the chip gets on the correct runner's shoe.

Chip Start

Mats for reading chips are set up at both the start line and the finish line. Each runner is timed from the start line to the finish line. There is not much advantage for competitive runners to crowd the start line making for a more leisurely start. This method is advantageous for larger races.

Cost is $2.00 registered runner with $350 minimum.

Gun Start

Mats are set up only at the finish line. Each runner is timed from the gun to the finish line. Competitive runners will crowd near the start line. This method is best suited to smaller races. (Less than 500)

Cost is $1.50 registered runner with $300 minimum.

Either method includes:

The race director's responsibilities:

  1. Get the race application to the news letter editor on time.
  2. Make arrangements for equipment required.
  3. Arrange pulling the trailer. Your volunteer or $35 for Cornbelt volunteer.
  4. Distribute and collect chips
    • Hand out numbered chips to the correct person (bib number) just before start.
    • Create a roped off finish area. Stanchions and ropes provided.
    • Collect chips from runners' shoes in finish area
    • Organize chips. The race will be billed $10 for each missing chip.
  5. Collect and make available race applications for data entry.
  6. Arrange registration with pre-labeled bibs for pre-registered runners and hand writing bibs for race day registration.

Our responsibilities:

  1. Publish the race application.
  2. Enter into our computer the information on race applications.
  3. Print labels before packet pick-up for placing on bibs.
  4. Do computer entry of race day registrations up to race start.
  5. Compute full age group results.
  6. Provide a printed copy at the race, usually available about 30 minutes after the race end.
  7. Provide runner names and addresses for next year mailing.
  8. Post results at www.cornbelt.org.
