The Athlete is also 100% totally responsible for the return of the chip. Our waiver will have a disclaimer that must be signed that states you, the athlete, must return the chip or be billed accordingly by our timing company. It is the racer’s responsibility to make sure that if you cannot attend the race, the chip will be returned within 7 days to USA Productions at the following address. If the timing chip is not returned the participant will be charged $30.
