Traditional timing: (Small races under 300)


Utilizing a "shot-gun" start. This consists of chutes, bib pull tags, and sophisticated timing software & equipment. As the participants cross the finish line, the bib # is inputted into the timing software. Participants enter finish line chutes, staying in the order they finished, where the pull-tag is removed from their bib and used for accuracy to match against the data entered in the computer system. This is a very cost effective way to time a race and is an affordable alternative for small races who want professional results at reasonable rates! We recommend this timing solution for small races utilizing a shot gun start (under 300 finishers).

Chip timing:  (Reusable Chips)


For larger races that require accuracy from start to finish on a individual basis or larger events that may start in  waves.


Transponder timing (also called chip timing or RFID timing) is a technique for measuring performance in sport events. A transponder working on a radio-frequency identification (RFID) basis is attached to the athlete and emits a unique code that is detected by radio receivers located at the strategic points in an event. Participants are required to return reusable chips and if they fail to do so are charged a small fee.

Chip timing: (Disposable) 


This service is identical to the reusable system yet offer conveniences many runners appreciate. Disposable chip timing is more expensive than reusable however offer runners the convenience not to worry about returning the chips.
