Participants will be granted access to their personal race results (‘Gun Time’ and ‘Net Time’), as captured by the timing system on the race website 48 hours after the last cut-off time.
Official results and ranking are based on the ‘Gun Time’.
‘Gun Time’ (officially accepted by the IAAF as the valid mode of measuring running time) is recorded as soon as the gun is fired and it includes whatever distance you had covered before you actually reach the start line.
‘Net Time’ is recorded only when you cross the start line. Race ‘Net Time’ is often shorter than Race ‘Gun Time’ as many runners do not cross the start line until several minutes after the official ‘Gun Time’ has begun.
