During the race

Punching

Night Hawk uses the EmiTag timing system. If you do not own an EmiTag device, you can rent one. Make sure to add the device to the order when entering!

EmiTags with serial numbers lower than 3929600 are considered expired and should not be used.

Starting

Before you can run, you must “zero” the EmiTag by holding it near a special starting unit, conveniently marked “Start”.

The controls

Punching is performed by holding the EmiTag less than 50 cm above the control device for a moment. An LED light in the EmiTag will flash for five seconds to confirm that the punch was registered. The EmiTag should not touch the control device.
