IM Timing Chip.
I was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem as me - a couple of weeks ago I received a registered letter from IMUK saying that I hadn't returned my timing chip for Ironman 70.3 at Wimbleball earlier in the year and stating that I either had to return it or pay them £50. What actually happened was that as soon as I crossed the finishing line at Wimbleball my timing chip and strap was taken off my ankle by one of the race officials (that is the last I saw of it). I have tried explaining this to IMUK (and have also stated that the timing chip is of absolutely no use to myself) but at present they are saying that unless I return the chip or pay £50 I will no longer be able to enter any furhter IM events. Can anybody remember if their chips were removed by an official at the end of their race. And is anyone else experiencing the same problem as myself. Thanks.
