New This Year - MyLaps Bib Chip Timing
So that the awards can be announced sooner to facilitate those who wish to leave before the parade, chip timing will be used this year. When you pick up your bib number, it will have a timing chip in it so there will be no more finish cards or waiting around for the last finishers to come in before the awards can be announced.
