Attention runners: New Bloomsday time device

The "D" Tag The "D" Tag
SPOKANE, Wash. - Bloomsday 2010 will have a new timing device. The D-Tag will be used for the first time this year. The D-Tag goes into the laces on a shoe off the runner. Last year a chip was used on an ankle bracelet and needed to be collected at the finish line area. Not so with the D-Tag.  
 
The new device is cheaper to use for the Bloomsday organization and requires less volunteer hours to prepare for the runners. The D-Tag is smaller and lighter.
 
When runners check in on Bloomsday weekend, they will find an orange plastic strip on their race number.  They should remove it from their number and follow the directions on how to place this in the laces of your shoe on race morning. If it's done correctly, it should form the letter D on top of their shoe.
 
Just like the system Bloomsday has used the past four years, every runner, jogger and walker will be timed precisely from the moment they cross the starting line to the moment they cross the finish.
