A runner’s “gun” finish time is the elapsed time from when the starting horn sounded until the runner crossed the finish line. The time waiting or slowly moving forward to cross the start line is included in the runner’s official “gun” time.
A runner’s “net” finish time (or “chip” time) is the elapsed time from when the runner actually crossed the starting line to when the runner crossed the finish line. Time spent waiting to cross the starting line is NOT included in the runner’s official “net” time.
The Shamrock Run uses “gun” times for only the top five overall finishers in each race. For all other finishers, and for the purpose of determining the top three finishers in each age group, the Shamrock Run uses “net” or “chip” times.
No, sorry. Although race walkers are permitted in all events at Shamrock, so long as they can maintain at least an average pace of 14:00 per mile, Shamrock does not offer a competitive race walking division.
