RunRio Timing Card

I was able to attend the public launch of RunRio's Timing Card at BGC. There's tons of great things we can look forward to (see below) from this small card. What I like the most is that all card bearers will be listed in Rio's Philippine Ranking. This will show how you fare against the other runners. For me, this will serve as a motivation to train even harder to improve my time and in effect, my ranking

Main Features
- Records and helps you track your performance during races
- Re-usable timing card for all RunRio races
- Helps you compare your time against other runners
- Helps you determine your level or category among the race participants

How To Attach Using Twist Ties?

How To Attach Using Laces?
The tag must be worn tied into your shoe laces
Thread laces through the top two holes only
Tighten the lace to hold the tag in place
Tie the lace and get ready to run

this timing device sucks. i ran in the rexona 21k last july 24 and i attached this kind of timing chip as instructed. to my disappointment, only my 7th and13th k were recorded but my finish time was not. i distinctly remember stomping on the electronic pad at the finish line and was properly handed a finisher's medal and kit.

its a new innovation so such errors are bound to happen. we hope that this will be rectified soon and we will be able to get accurate times on Run United 2 :)
