 CHRONOTRACK B-TAG TIMING (NO 5K WALK B-TAGS):

The 42nd Annual Frank Lloyd Wright Races are using the B-Tag timing system, a disposable tag that stays mounted on the runner's bib. The race bib and B-Tag will be distributed at packet pick-up. The 5K Walk is not timed, so no B-Tags will be issued to walkers.


RACE RESULTS:

Race results will be posted along the south wall inside the Fieldhouse when they become available. They will also be online on both flwraces.com and flw.enmotive.com
