This event is timed using a sophisticated electronic timing system. We introduced a different timing system in 2011 – the RaceTec System (previously known as Winning Time), which is the same timing system used by the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour. The good news is that if you already have one of these chips, you can use it for Two Oceans Marathon. The RaceTec System offers a state of the art timing system that will make the processing of results and times far easier and more user friendly. If you don't have one of these chips, then you will need to purchase a new one for the event at a cost of R120. This system is used extensively at various other races around the country including the 94.7 Cycle Challenge in Johannesburg. More info at RaceTec
All runners will be required to wear a RaceTec timing chip on one of their shoes during the race. The chip must be registered in the runner's name and not belong to someone else. Runners who do not own a chip (or have lost theirs) must enclose the additional timing chip fee of R120 with their entry fee. Runners who have ordered timing chips will find these at Registration before the race. Runners who lose their timing chips after entering or have left them at home will be able to buy a new timing chip at Registration. Remember: NO TIMING CHIP, NO RESULT. NO EXCEPTIONS. It is compulsory to have your timing chip at Registration in order to collect your race pack with race numbers etc. The timing chip becomes your property after the race and can be used for all events in SA that use the same timing system. Please ensure that you keep your timing chip in a safe place after the race in order to avoid having to buy a new chip.
