RACE TIME WILL BE MEASURED ON CHIP TIME
Chip time is another way of saying "net time," or the actual amount of time it takes a runner to go from the starting line of a race to the finish line. Race bibs with a timing chip or tag (called a B-Tag) attached to the front or back of the race bib. As you move across a special mat at the starting line, the chip registers that you've started the race. Then, as you cross the finishing line, the chip registers that you've finished the race. This means the amount of time that it takes you to reach the starting line (since most people are not right at the front of the race) doesn't count in your overall time. Your chip time is different than your "gun time," which is the amount of time it took you to finish the race from the moment the gun (or horn) went off. As a result, runners at the start can line up where it's appropriate for their pace, instead of trying to push their way to the front.
Travel Award - based on most employees participating, per airline in each of the categories: A, B, C, D.

Category C…………… 2,001 to 8,000 employees

RETIREES—MERGES & OUT OF BUSINESS
If a person retires and his airline is still operating that person still runs and scores for his airline.
If the airline goes out of business and the person is retired they can still run under the old name.
If the airline goes out of business and/or is purchased by another airline or returns under a new name then all will run under the new name including retirees.
