5k Run in beautiful Wheaton Regional Park

St. Andrew Apostle 5k Run -look good. feel good. get into shape.

Chip Timing

Chip Timing is a technology for sensing and recording the finishing times of all runners in a race. It's much more accurate and can easily deal with the old problem of many runners finishing nearly at once in a big, crowded race. The "chip" is a tiny electronic chip that's programmed with a runner's specific runner identification. A runner attaches the chip to his shoelaces. It sends a signal to an electronic reading device--often hidden under a strip of carpet-- when a runner crosses the start line and again when he crosses the finish line. No human observation is necessary. The runner's exact time is recorded automatically.

Chip timing is a nice service to offer your runners because it gives them the exact time of their run. However at our race , gun time is the official time. The reason for this is that we want the first person who crosses the finish line to be the winner, not someone who started later and crossed the finished line afterwards. We will be presenting awards based only on gun time, publish both results, since runners are likely to want to see both times.

The Course

The 5K course is mostly on a paved bike path through Wheaton Regional Park. The course begins with a short stretch on the athletic fields behind St. Andrew Apostle, then continues on a scenic loop course winding through the woods, along the lake and finishes back at St. Andrews.
