post race refreshments
Enjoy a banana, a granola bar, water, and Skratch brand fluid replacement after the run. High 5's all round when you cross the finish line!

sportstats timing 
We use ChampionChip Timing at all Somersault races. This timing system requires that all participants wear a ChampionChip band on their ankle during the race. This race band contains a computer chip that allows you to be timed.  No chip = no time.

You are responsible for obtaining your ChampionChip timing chip on race morning from the Sportstats Tent near the Finish Line.  Do this at least 30 minutes before your race - earlier is better!  Races will not be held up waiting for those who forgot their timing chip.

You must return your ChampionChip timing chip immediately after you cross the finish line.  You are responsible for the cost if it is not returned.

your results (age is as of December 31, 2017)
Results will be posted shortly after you finish the race.  Please check the results as soon as you can, to be sure they are accurate.  If there are discrepancies, go to the Sportstats van near the Finish Line and provide them with the information you think is correct.  Please have the Sportstats Crew make any necessary changes on site as soon as possible in order to allow for award presentations to proceed.

Results will be posted in the results section at somersault.ca/results.htm within 24 hours of the race.
