We offer a full race timing service with online and printed results.
In addition, we can offer:
To save you money we do not collect race entrants data or payments we leave this up to you. All we will need is the entrants data file.
We operate on a first come first served basis. We will not cancel your event if a larger event comes along. Obviously the earlier you book the greater the chance of getting your chosen day. We definitely do run out of crew, vans and games on certain days.
Typically, a race timing event is organised approximately two months or more in advance.
If you are having race bibs personalised with the participants name then we will require this a minimum of two weeks prior to the race.
The final race list must be submitted 48 hours before the race.
We will liaise with you to ensure you are collecting date in the correct format to ensure that we can provide the race reports as per your request.
You can sell race places right up to start of the race. You will need to record your entries on a laptop and forward the data to us immediately.
If you run out of bibs then we always carry a spare supply which we can provide to you on a sale or return basis.
You will need to advise us where the start and finish lines are.
You should also ensure that you have enough space for us to set up a gazebo next to the finish line.
If we are supplying a finish line arch they you should not set up barriers near to the start or finish lines.
If you are supplying power you will need to ensure the power source is within 20m.
We use ChronoTrack which we believe are the very best timing technology currently available.
Our UHF RFID race timing tags are single-use tags that improve efficiency and allocation of staff resources.
Our RFID tags are weather resistant and lightweight for an enhanced competitor experience. Due to the way the tag is manufactured and the technology included during this phase, no bulky foam spacer is required when the tags are attached to the running number. This makes a big difference for postal distribution and race-pack storage at registration.
Results can be found live from our website on our race results page.
We will also supply all printed reports that the race director has requested in advance.
We also offer post race validation. For example where the race director wishes to disqualify a participant or where a participant has completed a 10k race rather than the 5k they entered. Or simple data changes such as someone’s incorrectly spelt name.
At many mass participation events such as running, triathlons and competitive cycling events there is an official start time for the event. This is when the starter sets off the gun or hooter.
The gun time is the time from the official start time to when you cross the finish line. The gun time is used to provide the official results.
The chip time is the net time and is the time it takes you to complete the race from the time you cross the start line. The chip time gives each participant an accurate record of their own time.
Yes. Our arches, clocks and even our race sky guy can all be hired individually.
When making an enquiry for an event please provide information regarding the venue, start/finish times, date, the games or equipment you wish to hire or purchase and the type of event you are planning.
