RACE RESULTS

When can I look up my race results?

We are using a real-time race result technology, which means your results will be published on the race result page immediately. Your race position will be added and shown 30 minutes after the last runner has crossed the finish line.

 

Race times are based on the D-Tag timing chip attached to each runners Shoe. The timing device will not begin until the runner crosses the start line and will only end when the runner crosses the finish gantry.

 

How can I look up my race results?

Firstly, please make sure you have entered your first name followed by a space and then your last name (e.g. Susan Jones). If you still can’t see your results, please ensure you are using the full name you registered with (e.g. ‘Joanne Smith’ instead of ‘Jo Smith’).

 

Alternatively, enter your unique race number (BIB number), which you can find on your timing chip.

 

If, during sign-up, you opted to not display your name next to your results then you will be unable to search using your name and will need to use your race number.

 

If you did not finish the race due to personal choice or injury then you will only see race statistics up until the point, which you ran.

 

If you still can’t see your results or if you need to retrieve your race number, call Nike customer support. They will contact the race organizers who will try to look up your results.

 

I have entered my runner number but no results were found

Please check that your runner number is entered correctly, including any leading zero's (e.g. ‘0004’ instead of just ‘4’)

 

If you did not finish the race due to personal choice or injury then you will only see race statistics up until the point, which you ran.

 

I have lost my runner number and searching with my name yields no results. What can I do?

Please contact Consumer Services. They will need name and email dress of the runner to double check the race results.

 

I want to share my results on Facebook or Twitter. What information will my friends see?

When you share your results, the post will show your overall time. The post will also include a link to your results page. This means all the data you can see (position, time, pace, splits) will also be visible to anyone who follows your link on Facebook or Twitter.


Why do I not have a split time for one or more sections of the run?

This can be caused by a malfunction in the tag, the tag sensor or by runners who did not run over the sensors during the race.

 

How long will I be able to check my results?

The Race Result site will be decommissioned after 2 months after the final race.
