- Day of race registration/bib/packet pickup cut off times are also posted in the Roadrunner newsletter, on the MRTC website and on the MRTC Facebook page. MRTC makes every effort to transmit this information via email to its members and registrants, but accepts no responsibility for any email delivery failures. It is the runner's responsibility to know the rules of the Road Race Series and MRTC is not responsible for failure of any runner/participant to familiarize themselves with these rules.
- CHIP should be horizontal on the top of your running shoe. You can tie it on using your shoe laces, or you can pick up zip ties at the race registration site. Chip needs to be on your shoe in order for the timing system to read it. Chip should be worn to every race. If you forget your chip, you can rent one for $10. If you lose your chip you can buy a new one or $30.
- BIB should be worn on the front of your shirt or running shorts. The bib is used for backup. In the case of a chip read fail our volunteers can find you on the back up video of the finish line. If your bib wears out, blank bibs are available at every race registration.
