Race Timing
This year "Running 4 the Kids" will be featuring our new local timer J3 Timing! Running 4 the Kids uses a disposable chip timing on the back of the race bib.  Please do not remove the foam backed timing tag. It is lightweight and remains attached to the race bib. Runners must wear their race bibs on the front of their clothing in order to be timed accurately.
