THE application of “no bar code, no result” for the first time at the Hobie Beach Parkrun cost the top two finishers dearly on Saturday.

Although entry to the race is free, all finishers have to register online and produce the bar code at each race. To comply with global rules, the requirement was enforced for the first time since the introduction of the PE leg six months ago.

Up to this weekend’s run local organisers have accommodated those who did not produce their bar codes resulting in bottlenecks at the finish where results were recorded manually.

Participants who did not produce their bar codes were recorded as unknown.
