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.
The Travel, Participation and International Awards have four awards in each due to the Airline Categories A, B, C, D.
Airline Categories are based on the size of the airline:
Category A…………… Over 20,000 employees
Category B…………… 8,001 to 20,000 employees
Category C…………… 2,001 to 8,000 employees
Category D…………… 2,000 employees or less
The total number of airline runners who ran either the 5K or 10K. If both races are run, only the 5K is counted. This list is then fed against the handicap points established each year based on distance traveled from the airlines Corporate Headquarters city to the WARR City. One point is awarded for each 1,000 miles traveled and then multiplied against the number of runners for that airline. The airlines are broken down by categories based on size of the airline. There are four travel trophies based on region.
Same categories as above. This time we look at speed. Start with 5K. Example: if there are 10 total finishers and three airlines (A, B, and C) – ‘A’ airline had three runners and finished in 1, 5, 6 place-scored 12 points. ‘B’ airline had four runners and finished in 2, 8, 9, 10 place: points would be 29. ‘C’ airline had three runners and finished 3, 4, 7 place and would get either 14. Least points wins.
Only looking at the 5K. Nine finishers are needed to complete a TEAM of 9 runners: 3 Men Open, 3 Men Masters and 3 Women (any age). The total score of the 9-team members by place (cross-country scoring) will determine the winner.
Overall Team Trophy for the 5K & 10K races placing 1st to 2nd.
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.
Below is a list of the 210 awards presented at the Awards Ceremony the evening after the race.
