A replacement for a timing chip is subject to an administrative fee of S$30. Please call our hotline: 9001 7225 before Friday, 8 May 2015 to inform us for a replacement. A spare bib together with a timing chip will be given on the Race Day at the information booth.

2. What happens if I lose, misplace or forget to bring my child’s timing device to the race? Can my child still run in the race?

Runners may still participate in the race if they have lost, misplaced or forget to bring their timing devices. However, their race timings will not be recorded and will not be eligible for any prize. Please note that runners MUST have their race bibs to enter the race route.

3. Do I need to return the timing device after completing my race? 

The timing chips are disposable. You do not need to return them to the organisers.

4. What is the correct way of attaching the Timing Chip on my child’s shoe? 

The chip should be attached to the shoelace or attached to the shoe with an ankle strap. Loop a single lace through the square holes of the ChampionChip and pull it tightly to the shoe. The best position to tie the ChampionChip is the lowest part of the shoelace, as close as possible to your toes.

5. Why is my child’s timing not on the website? 

The ChampionChip has the advantage of recording fast and accurate timing results for participants. In the event that your child’s timing was not recorded, this could be due to following reasons:

  • Chip was not attached to the shoe laces
  • Chip was wrongly attached
  • Chip was not worn during the race
  • Missed check points on timing mats
