Welcome to the Tyler Run for Autism! We are glad you are here to support families and children benefited by this race. Please read all of the information below for details about our race:

Timing

Q: What if my timing device such as a Garmin or my fitness app has me at a different time than the chip read?

A: With so many timing apps available on the market it is not possible for us to adjust chip times based on an individual’s app or device such as a Garmin. If we allowed this, there would be no way for race officials to verify everyone’s individual timing device and therefore interfere with overall race results. To maintain the integrity of the event we use the chip time that times everyone using the same technology.
