Awards, Timing & Qualifying
Capital Road Race Management is the official timing company of AR50. We will
be using the ChronoTrack B-tag timing system. You must wear your B-tag on your
shorts or singlet. If you do not wear your B-tag following the instructions, you will
not receive an official time nor be eligible for an award. Please read the
B-tag instructions here.
If you are competing for a top 3 overall award, please line up in front as you will be scored on "gun time." All age division awards will be based on chip time.
Please seed yourself accordingly at the start. If you are not running a 6 minute pace, please do not line up on the front line.
Overall awards to the top male and female. Age group awards will be given to the top 3 in each ten year age division for both male and female.
All official finishers (under 13 hours) receive a finisher's jacket. You will be presented with your finisher's jacket when you cross the finish line.
A reminder that while we must order the jackets well before the event, we will do our very best to insure that you receive the jacket size you requested. If you are not happy with the way your jacket fits, you must wait until the event is over before we can exchange your jacket for a different size if the size is available. Shirts can be exchanged for a different size at the finish line, depending on availability.
"Hit Your Split" Sponsored by
As you cross the timing mat at Beal's Point (Mile 26.7) runner splits will be recorded. Hit your Split at: 2:59, 3:59, 4:59 and Last Split and receive a Patagonia surprise! Winners will be announced as the results are available at the finish line.
(if desired numbers are not hit exact, closest runner splits numbers will win)
Two spirit awards will be presented to a runner who demonstrates courage, determination and the "spirit of having fun" while en route to the finish line.
