ChronoTrack System

ChronoTrack Race Timing

The Louisville Triple Crown of Running℠ series will be using the ChronoTrack Timing System's disposable tags called B-Tags. The B-tags are attached directly to your race bib (also referred to as your race number). The B-tags will be on the back of your race bib when you pick them up at packet pickup. One of the many goals of the ChronoTrack System is to simplify the timing process for athletes. A disposable tag eliminates the need for you to worry about turning in a timing chip after the race.

A few rules to follow regarding the B-tag:
  1. Race bib should be clearly visible on the front of the torso
  2. Race bib should be unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  3. Race bib should be pinned in all four corners
  4. Race bib should not be covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)
