Timing of the Tiger Tri will be done using the MYLAPS (Formerly ChampionChip) timing system. A Chip (transponder) will be worn on an ankle strap that provides 100% accuracy for run, swim and bike splits as well as overall times. All competitors will be required to wear a Chip. Competitors not wearing the Chip on race day will not be timed or scored in the results.

Remember: Unless you own your own Chip, you must return the Chip at the finish line at the end of the event.
