For the 3K fun run, 10K, half marathon, and marathon automatic timing will be used.
There will be timing in the marathon, half marathon, 10K race and 3K fun run. The timing chip is built into the bib number in these distances. No chips fastened to the shoe leashes like in some races. It is very important that participants do not fold or tear their bibs. It is also necessary to fasten the bib on the front of the t-shirt and keep it visible, especially when running over the timing mats. See further instructions here.
Mats will be located at the start/finish line where participants will run over. No race bib = no time. Each chip has a number in our database which is linked to an individual runner. Timing starts when a participant runs over the mat and finishes when he runs over it again when finishing the race. Chip time, therefore, gives an accurate time for the assigned runner regardless of his position at the start. There will also be so-called 'gun time' which is the time from the countdown/alert at the start of the race until participants cross the finish line. Gun time is the official timing for the race, according to international rules on certified races. In addition to the mats placed at the start/finish line, mats will be located at 7 places along the track: at 10K, 16K, 20K, 21.1K, 25K, 30K and 37.2K. The participants will get their split time registered when they cross over the mats.
Participants that register their mobile number will get a text message with their chip time shortly after they finish the race. It is possible to add and edit mobile numbers on "my page".
Live results will be here at rmi.is on race day. Please note that these are only preliminary results that are updated every 10 sec (might take longer when many people are coming in at the same time). Official results will be published on the web at 17:00 on race day.
Specialists from Timataka.net will take care of the timing at Íslandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon.
