Time registration

Will my time be registered?
The MYLAPS BibTag system will be used to register your time at the NN Half marathon, 10K Run, 5K Run or one of the business runs. Behind your running number (Bib) there is an electronic chip (Tag) and a plastic spacer. BibTag makes it very simple to register your times; the only thing you need to do is wear your race bib correctly.

Tips to guarantee good time-keeping

  • Make sure that your running number is displayed clearly on your chest. Do not cover it with a jacket or your hands when crossing the mats at the starting and finishing line. These mats pick up the signal from your BibTag. (Also be careful with operating your own stopwatch at the starting and finishing line).
  • Do not fold or crease your race bib. Certainly not where the Tag is located.
  • Use four pins at the corners of the bib, making sure that you do not pierce the Tag.
  • Do not remove the plastic spacer.
  • The BibTag uses different technology from the MYLAPS ChampionChip. This means that you cannot use your yellow or green MYLAPS ChampionChip during this event. However, you may leave your MYLAPS ChampionChip on your shoe, as this will not interfere with the BibTag system.
  • The Tags do not need to be collected after the race, so you can keep the bib (with Tag) as a souvenir or simply throw it away with normal waste (plastic).

What is the official time?
The gross time is the official time. This starts as soon as the starting shot has been fired and stops as soon as you cross the finish. The net time is the time that starts as soon as you cross the mat at the starting line and stops when you cross the finish. This net time is announced as an extra service.

Results

Where can I find my race result?
All race results will be pulished online on our website immediately after the event. The gross time is the official time. You can find the results of previous editions here.

If your results are incorrect, please send an e-mail to Mylaps Event Timing including you bib number and your clocked times.
