ChronoTrack Timing

One of the many goals of the ChronoTrack system is to simplify the timing process for athletes. A disposable tag eliminates the need for several organizational choke points that allow the athletes to spend more time focusing on their competition and less time waiting in lines. Shorter lines before the race to pick up your bib and chip and no line to return your tag or chip afterward are just some of the benefits to the ChronoTrack system. The B-tag is attached to your bib.  This tag stays on your bib!  It is far lighter and less intrusive than other timing tags and chips.

Fairfield Half Marathon Security


No bags or backpacks will be permitted. 


Persons upon their arrival at either the new Fairfield Metro Train Station or the Fairfield Train Station will be given a large clear ziplock bag to put their items in.  This bag will be large enough to accommodate a hand towel, a shirt and light pullover, sandals, and a few small personal items.  Bulky items such as shoes and beach towels will not fit and should be avoided.  A new expanded baggage collection area will be provided on the beach. 


Runners arriving by train need to be very aware that they will have no place to leave anything not fitting in the bag.


Runners arriving at either station by auto need to check to see that the ziplock bag closes prior to leaving their car. 


Persons driving directly to Jennings Beach and the nearby surrounding lots, we suggest leaving all personal items in their cars if possible and not using the baggage area.  Remember that these lots are small and will be full by around 7:00 am. - if you arrive after 7:00 or the lots are full drive 5 minutes to either train station and take bus back to the start area. Cars in and around the beach lots may be subject to random searches.
