CHIP TIMING
The Bass Lake Yosemite Triathlon is a chip timed race.  The chip is a tiny transmitter attached to your shoe.  When you cross the finish line the chip transmits a signal to a antenna in the blue carpet.  The antenna picks up the signal and sends it to our timing computers for processing.

Please pick up your chip on RACE MORNING at the finish chute just in front of the Finish Line.

After you finish, please return your chip at the finish line.  If you DNF or forget to return your chip please return your chip to the announcer.
