TIMING

All 2015 Little Rock Marathon races (except for the Little Rockers Final Mile) will be timed using the Jaguar™ RFID Race Timing System, as well as disposable timing chip, which is attached to each participant’s race number. The disposable chip requires no battery, is lighter than a feather and has a built in microprocessor customized to ensure maximum reads even during the most challenging of conditions.

  • no mats on the ground to slip or trip on
  • no chips or tags to return post race
  • official “gun” time results available at the results tent with live scrolling results on TV Monitors and touch screen kiosks
  • No chip/race number. No time. No exceptions.

How does the Jaguar System works?
Jaguar uses ultra-efficient antennas that are placed above and beside the finish line and other timing locations such as start and split points.  Using specially customized RFID readers, Jaguar can read the disposable timing chips in the most demanding environment – on the human body.  Being made mostly of water, the human body does a great job of absorbing RF energy.  That makes it extremely difficult to read the very low-power signal reflected back from a timing chip.  Jaguar has the engineering technology that allows disposable bib chips to work extraordinarily well.

Timing services are provided by Start 2 Finish LLC of Memphis, TN.

  • No cash awards will be paid to winners.
  • Only the first place male and female winners of marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K will be presented with an award at the finish line.  All other awards will be mailed once race officials have certified the results.
  • Awards are based on chip time.
  • No duplication of awards.
