The Surfing Madonna "Save the Ocean" 5K/10K will be using the state-of-the-art race timing technology from CHRONOTRACK, implemented by Gault Race Management.

The Surfing Madonna "Save the Ocean" 5K/10K is proud to announce the implementation of ChronoTrack, a new innovation that allows for the use of disposable tags called B-Tags. One of the many goals of the ChronoTrack system is to simplify the timing process for athletes.

ChronoTrack Systems, having continued their pioneering work in UHF timing systems, is now pleased to announce the arrival of the most anticipated technology in race timing history: the B-Tag, a disposable UHF RFID tag that stays mounted on the runner's bib.

Because the B-Tag is mounted on the back of the runner's bib, it is virtually invisible to the participant and requires no special pre- or post-race handling. The disposable B-Tag insures high accuracy, fast results and simplicity of use for races of all sizes.

Please be sure to wear your bib on the outside of all your garments for accurate timing.


Late Registration

The Late Registration fee is $60. Late Registration will take place ONLY from 8 am to 11 am on November 16, 2013 (race day) at the Registration Tent at Moonlight Beach.


There is ample parking for participants in the Moonlight Beach parking lot and the surrounding area. If you have friends racing in the event, we recommend that you carpool, which is a great way to cut down on pollution and save money and fuel.


There will be 15 portable restrooms located in the main parking lot. Public restrooms will also be available at the beach during the event.
