3.  Applicants will get their confirmation within 7 working days of registration closure or on or before 4th October 2022, whichever is earlier. 

 

4. Applicants can submit timing certificates of only those events wherein Race promoters/organizers need to follow the below mentioned guidelines, for timing certificates of their races to be considered under confirmation criteria. Where any of the guidelines are not followed by a promoter/organizer, or where there are many issues/complaints relating to timing, distance or technical conduct of the race, Procam may at its sole discretion, not accept the timing certificates of such running events. Decision of Procam in this regard will be final and binding. 

i.     The running event must have been conducted on or after 1st October 2019.

ii. The course is measured either by an accredited World Athletics/AIMS measurer using the calibrated bicycle method http://aims-worldrunning.org/measurement/MeasurementOfRoadRaceCourses.pdf OR by a local state athletic association representative using a GPS measurement device. Measurement by GPS device has been found to underestimate course length by approximately 400m over a marathon distance so the target reading for a GPS-measured marathon should be 1% more than the advertised distance, i.e., 42.62 km. Equivalent GPS device target lengths for other race distances would be: 25km – 25.25km & Half Marathon – 21.31km. The measurement report must be uploaded onto the official website of the event. The measurement report must be uploaded on the respective event’s website.

iii.  All runners are compulsorily timed using the RFID technology.

a. Timing tags must have been securely pasted to the running number bibs before handing them over to the runners – timing tags must not be handed out loose to the runners.

b. In addition to the timing mats at the start and finish gates, the course should have the following minimum number of mats on the course (split points)

(a) For a full marathon course (42.195 km) – at least 3 split point  timing mats.

(b) For a 25 km course – at least 2 split point timing mats

(c) For a half marathon course (21.097 km) – at least 2 split point timing mats.

c.  The provisional timing results are displayed on the website within 12 hours of the published close hour of the race.

d.  Final race results should be available on the event website and verifiable online. Such final results must also include timings of runners recorded on the minimum number of split points as mentioned in point iii(b) above.

iv.   Please note your running events cannot state verbally or in writing, expressed or implied, as an official qualifier to the Tata Mumbai Marathon/2Mumbai Marathon across any forms of communication.

v.   Adequate verifiable mechanisms are required to be put in place by the race promoter/organizer to verify that the Tata Mumbai Marathon 2023 applicant is the runner who registered and ran at the running event in concern.

vi.  Runners with results that show timings of lesser number of split points/split point timing data not available, such timing results/certificates will not be considered for the Tata Mumbai Marathon.

vii. In case it is observed that there are a substantial number of finishers with one or more timing split point missing data/data not available, Procam may at its sole discretion not accept timing certificates of such running events. The decision of Procam shall be final and binding.
