As a USATF-sanctioned race, Beat the Bridge must follow USATF rules in determining the top 5 overall winners in the 8K Race. This means that a runner's official race time begins when the starting horn sounds. USATF recognizes "start times" and not "chip times" when determining a runner's official finish time.
