B-Tag Scoring

The B-Tag by ChronoTrack is the timing device used to score participants. The B-Tag is attached to the back of your runner bib.

In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is:

  • Clearly visable on the FRONT of the torso.

  • Unaltered or modified. Do not fold or wrinkle or you risk breaking the timing chip.

  • Pinned in all four corners so the timing chip stays flat.

  • Not covered with jackets, water bottles, etc so as not to block the reading of the timing chip.
