The 2019 44th Anniversary Holyoke St. Patrick’s 10K Road Race will be timed & scored using the single-use bib tag timing system, called a bib-tag, attached to your race number. In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is… clearly visible on the front of the torso, unaltered and unmodified (do not fold or wrinkle), pinned in all four corners and not covered. The bib tag is disposable; it will not be collected after the race.
Your Runner Number and bib-tag are part of your registration packet and MUST be retrieved on Friday, March 15th between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. or on Race Day from 9:00 a.m. to noontime at Race Headquarters,143 Maple Street, conveniently situated less than 100 yards from the Starting Line. Race numbers are used for identification purposes and must be worn and clearly visible from the front of your body throughout the race.
Prize money awards are based on official “gun” time, the time elapsed from the official start signal to your bib-tag recording at the finish. Age group awards in the road race are based on “net” time. Your net time starts as you leave the start line and your bib-tag is noted, so this time shows your actual time on the course.
