Electronic transponder timing services will be provided by Event Strategies to ensure accurate and quick publishing of race results. 

  • You will be allocated a race number bib and it has an electronic timing tag on the back linked to you and the race you have entered.
  • Before you start you must notify Timing Officials if any of your entry information needs changing e.g. you are changing race distance.
  • Do not use someone else’s number bib as this will produce false results for everyone.
  • Attach the bib at waist height to the outside front of whatever top you will be wearing. Do not bend or fold the tag or tamper with it.
  • Your time and number will be recorded when you pass a timing point provided your race number bib is visible. Covering it with clothing or your hands as you operate a watch will prevent it recording.
  • Ensure you start at the correct time for our race distance.
  • Race bibs are your keepsake of the Great Southern & do not need to be returned.
  • If you cut the course short (for example by skipping a lap, or taking a shortcut), do not pass through the finish timing point as we may inadvertently think you have won the race. Please notify Timing Officials if this occurs.
  • If you lose your race number bib during the race you must notify Timing Officials as soon as you cross the finish timing point.
  • Please notify Timing Officials if you pull out of your race before finishing
