  • We have created a virtual start and finish on each course. These are approximately 200 feet after the start and before the finish of each course.

  • This was done to ensure everyone is timed on the same exact course segment.

  • This means your course time will differ from your segment time due to segment time not starting or finishing until you hit those virtual gates.
