The Half Marathon and DHL Corporate Champions race categories are compulsory timed race at the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon 2013. The RFID Bib Tag will be used for timing purposes at the Event.
A ‘Bib Tag’ is a transponder, marked with a unique identification number. The ‘Bib Tag’ can be used under all weather conditions, wet and dry, cold and hot. The ‘Bib Tag’ starts to send its signal when it crosses various mats which are placed at the Start & Finish gates and at designated split points on the course. Your time at such points will be captured and duly recorded. This timing technology will be provided and managed by Timing Technologies India, the official distributor of the Mylaps Sports Timing System in India and Asia.
All confirmed half marathon runners will get their RFID Bib Tag which is attached to their respective running numbers, from the Get Active Expo at NSIC Exhibition Complex, Gate No. 3 & 4, Okhla Industrial Area Phase-III, Outer Ring Road, Near Govind Puri Metro Station, New Delhi – 110020, between 6th and 8th December 2013, from 11 am to 7 pm each day.
It’s necessary for every participant of the Half Marathon and DHL Corporate Champions to collect his/her running number bib (with big tag) from the Get Active Expo in person. Why? ..
Please read the instructions given to you prior to using your bib and bib tag on race day. Each Bib Tag is specifically allocated to the running number of individual runners. DO NOT exchange your running number bib with another fellow runner nor try to remove the bib tag from your bib and hand it over to another fellow runner. Any interchange will amount to no timing and disqualification of your participation from the 2013 and 2014 editions of the Event.
Usage of multiple timing devices will not record your time and will amount to disqualification. Also please note you cannot use this ‘Bib Tag’ to time yourself at any other distance running event.
On race day, just wear your running number with the ‘Bib Tag’. The Bib Tag is attached to the running bib number and sends out a unique signal. Detection mats are placed at the start and finish and intermediate time points. The mats serve as the system antennas and detect the signals sent out by the Bib Tags. Your time at such points is captured and duly recorded. Remember- you must wear your Bib which has been specifically allocated to you.
