Cougar 5K Run/Walk

Cougar 5K Run/Walk Race Timing Information

The Cougar 5K will use the timing system known as the Chronotrack B-Tag. B-Tags will give quick and accurate timing results. This chip is a disposable timing tag that runners receive at packet pick up on their race bibs. It is lightweight and remains attached to the race bib. Runners must wear their race bibs on the front of their clothing in order to be timed accurately. There is no post race chip turn-in or fee for lost or unreturned chips.

The top 3 overall male and female finisher times and prizes will be based on the clock time of crossing the finish line. Age category winners will be based on chip timing results.

Race times and results will be posted immediately after the race. Results can also be viewed on the following websites: Chicago Area Runners Association (CARA) and Chicago Athlete Magazine.
