It is the responsibility of athletes that finish in the awards to note any necessary corrections on race day. If an error is discovered post-race we'll be happy to correct your results and update the website accordingly. However, if you do not inform us of this issue before your award is given out we will no longer have an award to give to you and we can't remake awards.

Timing and Scoring

The races will be electronically timed and scored. You must wear your race bib and D-tag properly to be scored. Your race bib must be worn on the front of your torso and be visible at the finish line. Your D-tag must be worn properly on one of your shoes. See Chronotrack D-Tag Instructions for details.

Preliminary results will be posted at the race site at the conclusion of the race. Full results will be published on the NOTC web site after the race.

Official race results are scored by gun time. Net (or chip) times are published for informational purposes only.


SnapLaces will be given in lieu of T-shirts for the race. Laces guaranteed to pre-registered participants only. Laces to late and race-day registrants while supplies last.


Post-race refreshments include Kentwood Springs water, Crescent Crown beer, Smoothie King smoothies, Cook Me Somethin' Mister jambalaya, and snacks from Love, Cookie and Elmer's CheeWees.
