The magnificent RENATA Oberelbe-Marathon was run on the 29th April 2012 in picture perfect conditions. The course takes advantage of the wonderful country-side and beautiful bike trail along the Elbe River into the city of Konigstein. Offering marathon, half marathon, 10km and a fun event distance; a wide range of runners were able to enjoy the course.
Baer Service in Germany supplied the timing services for the day using the Ultra system from RFID Race Timing. By using the ULTRA system Baer Service were able to use disposable RFID tags with this event rather than reusable tags as in the previous years. This resulted in a more efficient way of timing the event. Tag allocation and collection post race was no longer required as the RFID stickers were attached to the runner’s bib.
