All participants in the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon & 5K must read and become familiar with the following race rules and regulations:
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! Entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable. You may not roll your entry over to another year or transfer, sell or give it to another person if you are unable to run. This policy applies to all entrants and is in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected family/business emergency, have a medical emergency, or if the event is cancelled because of weather, natural disaster or other unforeseen circumstances. There are NO exceptions.
If you do not run or pick up your event shirt, upon request, we will provide you with a letter acknowledging your registration fee as a charitable donation.
The Caesar Rodney Half Marathon will be timed by Lin-Mark Sports, Inc. of Mantua, NJ utilizing the Chronotrack Timing System. The disposable Chronotrack B-tag will be attached to your race bib number and will remain there for the entire event.
Overall winners are based on gun time. All other awards are based on chip time. Chip time is recorded by an electronic chip that is attached to a runner’s bib. Your chip records the time at which you cross the start line, the finish line and several split times in between. Chip time is often shorter than gun time because chip time begins when a runner crosses the start line while gun time starts when the gun is fired; many runners don’t cross the start line until several minutes after their official gun time has begun.
During Race Week, runners (and family/friends) will be able to sign up for Athlete Race Tracking through Chronotrack Live. Finishers will have their splits/results texted to their mobile device within minutes after crossing a timing station, For more information about Chronotrack Live, click here.
