Time indication

Where are the kilometers indicated?
The Marathon Eindhoven is the first marathon in which we worked with counting down km-points. In marathons, the mileage points are indicated, so runners know how much they have already done. In other sports (such as cycling) the distance to the finish line is indicated. By introducing the countdown km-points in combination with a motivating spell, the Marathon Eindhoven wants to offer its participants a psychological advantage. So not: '36 km covered', but: 'only 6 km left' to go. All parts finish at the Vestdijk. That means that every runner can see these countdown km signs. Because many runners would like to see the standard 5 km signs and times, these are retained along the courses.

The countdown km-points were first introduced in 2017 and were a great success. Last year the concept was further developed and all participants were facilitated in advance with adapted timetables so that they knew exactly when to be at what time to reach their personal dream time.

Time registration

Is there a time registration?
Only at all parts of the Marathon Eindhoven on Sunday the MYLAPS BibTag will be used to register time. On the back of your starting number (Bib) is an electronic chip (Tag) and a plastic spacer. BibTag makes it very easy to register your times, the only thing you have to do is wear the start number correctly.

Tips to guarantee good time-keeping

  • Make sure that your running number is displayed clearly on your chest. Do not cover it with a jacket or your hands when crossing the mats at the starting and finishing line. These mats pick up the signal from your BibTag. (Also be careful with operating your own stopwatch at the starting and finishing line).
  • Do not fold or crease your race bib. Certainly not where the Tag is located.
  • Use four pins at the corners of the bib, making sure that you do not pierce the Tag.
  • Do not remove the plastic spacer.
  • The BibTag uses different technology from the MYLAPS ChampionChip. This means that you cannot use your yellow or green MYLAPS ChampionChip during this event. However, you may leave your MYLAPS ChampionChip on your shoe, as this will not interfere with the BibTag system.
  • The Tags do not need to be collected after the race, so you can keep the bib (with Tag) as a souvenir or simply throw it away with normal waste (plastic).

What is the official time?
Gross time is official time. It starts the moment the starting shot is given and stops the moment you pass the finish line. Net time is the time that starts when you pass the mat on the starting line and stops when you cross the finish line. The net time is given as an extra service.
