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).
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.
