How to Attach Chip Timer –

AWR will be using set timing/finishing guidelines from the UK Athletics for use of chip timing:

“When a chip timing system is used, the official time for published results under UKA Rules is normally that of the ‘Gun Time’ – ie the time taken by an athlete to complete the course from the moment the start ‘gun’ was sounded until he/she crosses the finish line.”
