Timing is done with the MyLaps system in all three distances. Timing mats are crossed in the start and at the end of the race so runners will get both their personal time (chip time) and gun time. Gun time is used to rank runners in both overall and age groups categories.
Each participant gets a chip that is linked to his/her name and number. This data chip has to be securely fastened to the runners shoe to give correct results. No chip = no time
This environmentally friendly chip is rented to the competitor during the Suzuki Midnight Sun Run and has to be returned after the race to the race staff. If the chip is not returned, the participant can be charged 1.500 ISK. It is not possible to use it in other races unless the chip is returned and programmed again for the next race.
The bib number and chip is registered and valid to registered participant only. The Midnight Sun Run reserves the right to disqualify runners using bib number and chip from others.
