The 2013 5K Run for Clean Air 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 # 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.
The 2013 Pre-Run Stretch will be led by YogaLife Institute on the base of the iconic Art Museum stairs. Yoga Living magazine's Yoga pose feature is "Yoga Practices for Runners" in the Spring, 2013 issue and the essence of this routine will be instructed at the Clean Air Pre-Run Stretch. Due to the outdoor setting, Standing only positions will be shown. The stretches will include Breathing Exercises that have been proven to increase endurance for runners.
