The official Bayshore finish time is the 'gun' time even if 'chip' scoring is used.
I realize this is a hot button issue, but the fact remains that the Bayshore is a footrace and in a footrace the first person to cross the finish line wins. I cannot fathom using a different standard for money and then another for medals. For money and records it is quite common if not standard for races to use gun time. The spirit of competition is lost on chip time. I will not deny someone who races the event and out runs or out kicks a competitor their just medal if the person they beat started slightly behind them at the start.
