The World 10K, Open 10K Run and DHL Corporate Champions race categories are compulsory timed race at the Tata Consultancy Services World 10K Bangalore 2014. The RFID Bib Tag will be used for timing purposes at the Event.
A ‘Bib Tag’ is a transponder, marked with a unique identification number. The ‘Bib Tag’ can be used under all weather conditions, wet and dry, cold and hot. The ‘Bib Tag’ starts to send its signal when it crosses various mats which are placed at the Start & Finish gates and at designated split points on the course. Your time at such points will be captured and duly recorded. This timing technology will be provided and managed by Timing Technologies India, the official distributor of the Mylaps Sports Timing System in India and Asia.
All confirmed runners of World 10K, Open 10K Run and DHL Corporate Champions will get their RFID Bib Tag which is attached to their respective running numbers, from the Get Active Expo between 9th and 11th May 2014, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day and at the outstation runners’ bib distribution on 17th May 2014 between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
It’s necessary for every participant of the World 10K, Open 10K Run and DHL Corporate Champions categories to collect his/her running number bib (with big tag) from the Get Active Expo in person. Why? ..
Please read the instructions given to you prior to using your bib and bib tag on race day. Each Bib Tag is specifically allocated to the running number of individual runners. DO NOT exchange your running number bib with another fellow runner nor try to remove the bib tag from your bib and hand it over to another fellow runner. Any interchange will amount to no timing and disqualification of your participation from the 2014 and 2015 editions of the Event.
Usage of multiple timing devices will not record your time and will amount to disqualification. Also please note you cannot use this ‘Bib Tag’ to time yourself at any other distance running event.
How does the ‘Bib Tag’ work?
On race day, just wear your running number with the ‘Bib Tag’. The Bib Tag is attached to the running bib number and sends out a unique signal. Detection mats are placed at the start and finish and intermediate time points. The mats serve as the system antennas and detect the signals sent out by the Bib Tags. Your time at such points is captured and duly recorded. Remember- you must wear your Bib which has been specifically allocated to you.
How to wear the ‘Bib Tag’?
