Occasionally the Stearns Race Management Team and/or volunteers fail to collect a timing chip at the finish line. In the event this happens, we ask you to take a look below at the different kind of timing chips and take the appropriate action.
Different Kind of Timing Chips
Bib Chip - These chips are attached to the back of your race bib and they are disposable. There is no need to return them.
Black Timing Chips – These chips need to be returned to Stearns Race Management. The Race director will either cover the cost of replacing them or bill you the cost of replacing them ($25.00 - $30.00 each). To Return, enclose in bubble wrap and place in padded envelop and mail to: Stearns Race Management 3425 E. Highland Drive Jonesboro AR 72401
White Timing Chips – These chips are disposable, there is no need to return them. we use these chips at our larger races for a number of reasons. We can recycle them, so, you may return them if you like or drop them off at the next race we are timing,
Yellow Timing Chips – These chips are the runners own chips, they own these chips and never have to return them. If you have a yellow chip, your chip code remains in our system and you never have to wait in the chip line on race day. Yellow chips can be purchased for $25.00.
