Runners of the marathon, half marathon and DHL Corporate Champions race categories will be timed at the 2015 edition of Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon. The RFID Bib Tag will be used for timing purposes at the Event.
A ‘Bib Tag’ is a transponder, marked with a unique identification number. The ‘Bib Tag’ can be used under all weather conditions, wet and dry, cold and hot. The ‘Bib Tag’ starts to send its signal when it crosses various mats which are placed at the Start & Finish gates and at designated split points on the course. Your time at such points will be captured and duly recorded. This timing technology will be provided and managed by Timing Technologies India, the official distributor of the Mylaps Sports Timing System in India and Asia.
All confirmed runners of marathon, half marathon and the category DHL Corporate Champions will get their RFID Bib Tag attached to their respective running numbers from the Get Active Expo between 9th and 11th January 2015, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day and at the outstation runners’ bib distribution on 17th January 2015 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Runners of these race categories must collect their running number bibs from the expo in person. Why? ..
Please read instructions given to you prior to using your bib and bib tag on race day. Each Bib Tag is specifically allocated to the running number of individual runners. DO NOT exchange your running number bib with another fellow runner nor try to remove the bib tag from your bib and hand it over to another fellow runner. Any interchange will amount to no timing and disqualification of your participation from the 2015 and 2016 editions of the Event.
Usage of multiple timing devices will not record your time and will amount to disqualification. Also please note you cannot use this ‘Bib Tag’ to time yourself at any other distance running event.
On race day, just wear your running number with the ‘Bib Tag’. The Bib Tag is attached to the running bib number and sends out a unique signal. Detection mats are placed at the start and finish and intermediate time points. The mats serve as the system antennas and detect the signals sent out by the Bib Tags. Your time at such points is captured and duly recorded. Remember- you must wear your Bib which has been specifically allocated to you.
Timing certificates will be available for download from the event website www.scmm.procamrunning.in within 21 working days after the race. The timing certificates will display the runner’s net finish time, split timings and ranking as per net finish time. Physical timing certificates will not be posted to individual runners.
