SAR News & Announcements:
We learned a few keys to happy, healthy feet are to let them play with marbles and lacrosse balls. Oh, and let them hang out every once in a while! Jessica Best, PT at ProActive Physical Therapy gave a great overview of the foot (200,000 nerve endings!) and the many things runners can do to keep their feet healthy. She even got us to take off our shoes in a group - not an easy task. Thanks Jessica!

Information on Using the NEW Ipico Shoe Chip at SAR Races, by Greg Wenneborg, Roadrunner Timing:
The Southern Arizona Roadrunners utilize the IPICO Chip Timing system to time and score our races. We have recently switched from bib rings to the much less bulky reusable foot tags.
We would like to alleviate any problems with the foot chips by having all participants pick them up at the race site.
We will have a chip pickup table for all participants at the race site on race morning.
Please get your chip and attach it to your shoe using the two provided twist ties. This chip will provide an extremely accurate electronic time and score as long as it is attached to your shoe. If it is in your pocket or attached to your bib number, it is likely too far away from the timing mats to send a signal to record your time.
At the end of the race, our timing crew will clip the chip from your shoe. If for some reason your chip is not removed, please return it to the timing/scoring tent at the race. Although it is possible to tie the shoe tag through your shoelaces, it takes longer for us to remove it in the finish corral, so we would prefer you use the provided twist ties.
