In order to get the best possible readings, placement of timing mats is important. Mats receive the best readings in the area shown below.
When using more mats to create a wider finish line make sure to have your mats overlap at least 30CM /1FT.
Make sure to create a clear running path that leads participants directly over the mats. Creating a guided running path (ex: barriers) is recommended. See images below.
Do not leave running space on the sides of the mats. This will create a dead zone where participants will run off the mat and their chips will not be read.
