On October 27, I ran the Healdsburg HM. I was lucky to finish the race with my sister, both because it was great to run with her but also because her time got recorded but mine didn't. I could estimate my finish time based on her chip time. I still wanted a real, "official" time, though.
I went to the Healdsburg HM website and the results page and found an email address that was specifically related to timing. I emailed that person and explained the situation. It took a while to get a response, but finally I heard back. "Devin" asked me if I had kept my bib (the race had the timing stuff embedded in the bibs, not a chip or D-tag). Thank goodness I'd kept it! I came close to throwing it out when I packed up to fly home. Apparently, the relevant number was not my race bib number but instead a long code on the back of the bib. Devin said the problem was that my bib hadn't been properly recorded at packet pickup. He said that if I sent him the last 5 digits of that long code, he could find my time. I sent it to him and five minutes later he sent me my official net time, and he told me that my time would be included the next time they update the results.
So the lesson learned here is that if your time isn't officially recorded, KEEP the bib / chip / D-tag and contact the person who deals with timing at the race. It might not be enough to know your bib number.
And my official net time for the HM was 2:20:25. (I had estimated 2:20:30, so I was pretty close.)
