All of the timing for our races is done by the great team at My Time.
The Waitakere Fun Run & Half Marathon uses the services of MyTime for race timing. The advantages to you are:
Your Timing Chip
You will be issued with a timing chip when you pick up your race number at registration. It’s your responsibility to make sure you get a timing chip, know how to use it and return it at the end of the race. Instructions for use and return are printed on the chip and you can also see an example of putting the chip onto your shoe in the video below.
On race day, the chip must be tied into your shoe laces before you start and be worn on your shoe throughout the race and over the finish line. Timing mats at the start and finish lines in the half marathon and 11km fun run will provide you with a net time for the event – that’s your real time for your run or walk, based on when you actually cross the start line. Please note: At the finish line, the transponders must be returned in the bins provided. It is your responsibility to return the transponder in the finish chute before leaving the finish area. All non-returned transponders will be charged to you at $50 incl GST each. If you do not finish the event, return the transponder to the Transponder Collection officials at the finish line or mail it to us at:
