When you pick up your timing chip at the timing trailer, after you have received your race packet, you will be asked to double check all the information on your timing chip. You must wear your timing chip at all times while you are racing. Fasten it to either ankle, with the Velcro strap provided, before the swim and leave it on until after you finish the run.
Volunteers will help you remove the chip at the finish line. If you do not start the race, you are responsible for returning the chip to timing. If you drop out or are pulled from the race at any time, turn in your chip to a REV3 Triathlon STAFF member. Failure to do so may disqualify you from participating in future REV3 events.
It is essential that we know where you are on the course at all times for your safety and our peace of mind.
Your race chip is a loaner. By picking up your race number and timing chip, you are guaranteeing that you will return the chip to timing, or you will be billed for its replacement. There is a $111.00 replacement fee for any lost or damaged timing chips. If you lose your timing chip during the event, you are responsible for a replacement at one of the following locations: swim exit, bike exit or run exit.
The REV3 Triathlon Transition Director will have extra timing chips at the timing locations above. If you lose your timing chip while on the run course, please notify a timing official immediately after crossing the finish line. Failure to wear your timing chip on race day, return your chip after the event, or pay the replacement cost of your lost chip may disqualify you from future Rev3 events.
Important to note: Several athletes lose their timing chip during the swim portion of the race. Please make sure your chip is strapped to your ankle underneath your wetsuit, we promise that you chip scans will read and you have a better chance of not losing your chip when you remove your wetsuit in transition.
NO CHIP = NO TIME!
