Timing Services Are Provided by
Gault Race Management

Chip timing for the Marathon, Half-Marathon, 5-Person Marathon Relay and 5K uses Chronotrack disposable tags. Mats will be placed along the course and at the start and finish.


Gault Race Management is proud to announce the implementation of ChronoTrack, a new system that uses a disposable tag called, a B-Tag. One of the many goals of the ChronoTrack system is to simplify the timing process for athletes. The B-Tag eliminates the need for you, the athlete, to worry about turning a chip in after the race. This allows you to relax and focus on competing. Shorter lines at packet pick up and you do not have to return your tag or B-Tag at the finish. These are benefits of using the ChronoTrack system.

The B-Tag comes attached to your BIB number. There is nothing you need to do except attach your BIB to your body in the following manner:

  • Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Race bib is pinned in all four corners
  • Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

Runner Tracking

Runner tracking is provided by RaceJoy, a mobile application. There are two levels of tracking available; checkpoint tracking, and live GPS tracking.

Checkpoint Tracking

This option is free and can track all runners as they progress through the course. No need to carry your phone to get progress and result information. To view an athete’s progress, download the Racejoy App and search for the runners to track in the Timing area in RaceJoy. You can also review their progress splits in the Buzz area of the app.

Live GPS Tracking

An upgrade option, you can track real-time an athlete’s progress and location. This option does require both the runner and spectator to upgrade to the PhoneFun version. This option is perfect for Relay Teams to track their progress along the course and simplify exchange points.
