Timing and Scoring:
This year's race will be timed by Trojan Timing and chip technology will be used. The most important part about adding this technology is to ensure that every athlete is wearing their assigned chips and that those chips are returned following each race.
Trojan Timing will have 2 places to return chips. You can return chips at registration for any athlete that will not be participating. All participating athletes will be required to return chips prior to leaving the finish area. A $10 return chip fee will be assessed to the participating team for every chip not returned. Returning chips is the responsibility of the head coach of each team.
$55 per high school (includes both girls and boys teams)
$35 per middle school (includes both girls and boys teams)
$3 per person
