The chip

The single and relay runners' times will be measured by ChampionChip system. If you have your own ChampionChip then you can submit it's number to the entry personnel when you sign-up previously, or at the latest when you acquire your start number. For those who have no chip of their own, there will be a single chip provided for the race with your start number. The deposit fee for this chip is 1000 HUF. This deposit will be returned to you after the race, in exchange for the chip. You do not have to pay this deposit if you are using your own chip. We ask all runners to check their chips at the chip-control desk.

You must use chip on the race. You may not take part in the race without one.

Attention: the chip can not be used at any other races. The chip must be returned until 14.00 o'clock at the latest. Foreign runners will have separate tents to go to! Please fasten the chip to your shoelaces. How to fasten the chip on your shoe? First you have to untie and remove your shoelaces, put your chip on it then tie it again. It's important that you not only try and fasten it to your shoe and not after tightening the laces or else you might loose your chip.
