Ipico Timing SystemFinishlynx Timing System

The Hole In The Wall Invitational is timed using the IPICO chip timing system and FinishLynx photo-finish system for the most accurate results possible.

Detailed instructions on proper use and shoe attachment will be distributed in the team packets.

Pre-registered racers will pick up 2 coded chips (one to be attached to each foot) and zip-ties for the timing chips at the Check-In tent next to the start line. To pick up chips, the individual racer must present their individual racing bib. Chips may not be traded with another racer as they are coded to the specific individual.

Please view the image below for proper chip attachement to shoe instructions:



Lost or stolen chips will incur a $15 Lost Chip Fee per individual charged to the school the individual is registered under.



ATTENTION ALL-COMERS RACE PARTICIPANTS

Due to a high number of registered athletes in the high school and middle school races, we do not have enough timing chips for the All-Comers race. Therefore we ask that you time yourself. We will have a clock set up at the finish line and 1 mile mark, but will be unable to record your time this year. We appologize for the inconvenience.

Shoe Tag Attachement Instructions

Team packets will be available for pick up at the Packet Pick Up tent next to the finish line.

  • Mens and/or womens individual racing bib numbers
