In Online Results, you may see different times in the Chip Time and Gun Time fields. Here's why:
- Chip Time is calculated based on when the timing equipment 'read' your bib when you started and finished the race. If you were 'read' at 1:00:21 pm at the start, and 1:20:21pm at the finish, your Chip Time would be 00:20:00.
- Gun Time is calculated based on the time between the Gun Start and when your bib was 'read' at the finish line. If the gun went off at 1:00:00pm, and your bib was 'read' at 1:20:21, your Gun Time would be :00:20:21.
If you are standing well back from the Starting Line, it may take a few seconds for you to cross the Starting Line and get 'read' after the Gun goes off. This is why you may sometimes see a difference between your Chip and Gun times.
