  • Will I receive race information in the lead up to my event?

    You will recieve information and instructions by email approximately 3 days before the race. It is important that your email account is accessible to you and that you check for the email before the race. Please be aware we do not post out race numbers, these are to be collected on the day from registration, we will provide safety pins.

  • Will I be chipped timed?

    RUN NATION will always endeavour the produce your results with Chip Timing. Sometimes chips are not picked up for reasons outside our control (the chip didn't work or was covered up by clothing or was wet/damaged), in these cases we may have to refer to our video (GoPro) at the finish to manually identify runners. This allows us to guarantee a finish time When the race is chip timed, your race/bib number will have a foam strip with the chip underneath - Do not remove or damage the foam or chip. Your race number should be attached to your running top at all four corners and be visible throughout the race (including start and finish). The race results/positions are always based on the GUN time NOT the chip time - this is standard across all official running events across the world. The sport has rules that are consistent and used in all countries/races that follow the World governing body rules. The chip time is only used for personal use. The position the runners cross the finishing line is how ALL results are calculated. WHERE RUNNERS DO NOT WEAR THEIR NUMBER CORRECTLY - THEY MAY NOT GET A TIME. PLEASE DISPLAY YOUR NUMBER ON THE FRONT OF YOUR RUNNING TOP AT ALL TIMES.
