Timing: We will be using the ChronoTrack "B" Tag Timing System again this year.

The B Tag is attached to the back of your bib, eliminating the fussing with your shoe laces. Racers cross Timing Mats at the Start and Finish to give you both an official "Gun" time as well as the unofficial "Net" time from when you cross the start mats. You, and your B Tag, must pass over both mat systems (start and finish) in order to receive your "Net" time. If your start time is not recorded, you will only receive your "Gun time". The official order of finish for the first three male and female finishers will be based on “Gun” time. For all but these 6 finishers, we will use “Net” times for official order of finish. The USAT&F does accept “Net” times for rankings for masters runners (40 and over). However, it is unclear if they will accept “Net” times for other age groups. Web site results on cbhm.com will be posted in both "Gun" time order as well as "Net" time order.
For the B Tag to work, it must be pinned on your outermost layer of clothing on your front and NOT folded or wrinkled.


Buses Back to Quechee Village Lot-Runners can board buses to be transported up the hill from the Finish Line to where you parked your car pre-race.
Note: This is the SAFEST WAY to get back to your car!
Race Finishing Medals: Will be given out at the Finish Line

T-Shirts: Shirts will be given at the end of the race to each finishing racer. Shirts cannot be mailed. 
T-shirt sizes are by gender because of the different cuts. 
Womens - S, M, L, XL. 
Mens - S, M, L, XL, XXL. 

Results: TBA
