It's always been a matter of respecting other runners on the start line. We can't all start at the front and slower runners that do only create bottle necks and delays for others. From the beginning of my running career I've always respected this and re-inforced it with my wife, daughters and wider family as I helped them to start out on their running careers. Of course this does mean we all record our own times as we lose varying amounts of time waiting to get a cross the start line. But no more. With chip timing we can all queue patiently to start because our time will be recorded based on when we actually crossed the line. So if that's the case why do the Running Fraternity persist in reporting results in gun time order. Worse they show both times so now you know that the person who beat you by 30secs in the official results actually lost to you based on the true chip time over the distance. I now see competitive runners in my family no longer convinced about start line etiquette which surely was the whole point of chip timing. So come on Race Organisers and Race Quality Standards setters. Let's have chip times as the reported results. Happy to hear any and all views on this.
