For a back up for the first few goes we do advise that you set your sports watch as well as this can be uploaded after the event. You then still appear on the leader board and the map for replays of the event.
The event can always be viewed at http://www.chiptiminguk.co.uk/
UPLOADING OF GPX, KML OR TCX FILES
We recommend that you run with a sports watch or a phone with a sports app that is just using GPS and is not relying on a solid phone signal. This data can then be uploaded here, https://racemap.com/upload
All events start at a specific time and run for the duration of the race.
For example, a race may start at 10am, that is the official start time and you should be on your start line at that time ready to go.
Your total race time goes from 10am until the specific distance is complete. The time is based on elapsed time (not moving time), therefore any stopping for toilets or drinks will be included in your race time, just like race day. (we will accommodate some leniency on start times if required)
Competitors can then upload a GPX, KML, ot TCX file as soon as they finished their 5k.
We always suggest running with a GPS tracking app or sportswatch as these do not require a solid phone signal.
Alternatively or as well as, competitors can be tracked using the Racemap app on their phones (this does require a good phone signal at all times). If neither of these options work for you, please send a screenshot and time to firstname.lastname@example.org
All maps and results get automatically updated to the leader board available at www.chiptiminguk.co.uk, where certificates can be printed out once times are verified. This will be 12 hours after the start of the event.
ADDING MANUAL TIMES AND SCREENSHOTS
Please email time and screenshot of elapsed time to email@example.com
