RunFAR now uses ChronoTrack radio frequency identification technology for races of 500+ participants, saving time, money, and volunteers for larger races.
Key Benefits for Race Organizers
- Disposable tag
- Low cost
- Easy distribution
- Race setup and cleanup much easier
- Fewer volunteers needed
- Elimination of a post-race traffic choke point
Event organizers who use the ChronoTrack system are able to maximize their volunteer energy and use it where needed instead of focusing on the demands of the traditional Champion Chip System, and chip retrieval.
Tag cost has been significantly reduced to the point where the tag can be disposed of after a race, while preserving the quality and accuracy of a highly reliable timing system.
The D-tag can be attached to a race bib, eliminating the organizational effort of distributing thousands of timing devices; tags are disposable, relieving the headache of distributing and collecting timing devices.

Key Benefits for Race Athletes
- Disposable tag
- Accurate time
- No fees for lost or unreturned tags
- Less hassle post race
- Lighter, less intrusive tag
- Easier to attach to shoe
- No pre-race check-in
- No post-race tag turn-in
With ChronoTrack, athletes will find shorter lines before the race to pick up a bib and chip and absolutely no line to return the tag or chip afterward.
More time can be spent focusing on the competition because ChronoTrack simplifies the timing process for athletes. The D-tag is easy to attach the shoe and is far lighter and less intrusive than other timing tags and chips. Once it is attached to the shoe, participants quickly forget that it is even there. After the race there is not hassle or accounting the tag can simply be thrown away or kept as a race day souvenir.
