Before winners are confirmed and cash prizes are distributed, finish times will be validated in three ways. Atlantic Chip will confirm all race data is finalized. Check-point mat data along route will be reviewed for each winner. Each winner’s previous national race finish times will be reviewed. Race organizers have right to disqualify finish times after reviewing data.
