my friend and i ran last week on a local race. He ran 5k and according to his own time watch he completed 16:47:00. However, the time result on the web showed he completed in 19:00:00 or so.
He checked with the event committee regarding this and said that the correct time was the 19:00:00 which was recorded from his race number NOT his time chip. Apparently his race number was falledn off his shirt while he was running and they said other runner picked it up and brought it in while he/she was running too. Thus the recorded time is based on the number not the time chip.
amy thoughts or comments whether this is correct or acceptable in running? I ran few 10k and HM and never know about this rule btwn time chip and race number is more valid the race number. Any such regulation frm the IAaF?
