EVENT TIMING

Chip Timing

We use MYLAPS chip timing for the most accurate, real-time timing results possible. Small chips are placed on each runner’s bib which record the precise moment the runner crosses the finish line. Times are recorded instantly. Results are available immediately on-site – they can even be accessed while the event is still in progress.

This option is best for events with over 100+ participants or smaller events where accuracy and quick results are desired.

Net Time vs. Gun Time

Results can be recorded with Gun Time or Net Time. Gun Time assigns the same starting time for every runner. It begins when the starting official starts the race. Every runner’s starting time is the same regardless of when they cross the start line.

Net time provides a unique starting time for each individual runner when they actually cross the starting line. Net time is the most accurate for individual runners while Gun Time is a more practical solution for shorter and smaller races.

Manual Timing

A more budget-conscious option is to eliminate chip bibs and instead manually record individual runner’s time as they cross the finish line.

While this option is more budget-friendly, it doesn’t offer the same benefits as chip timing. Results are not available immediately after the race – it often takes 24 or more hours to generate full results. Net timing is not possible.

Manual timing is very difficult for larger events, with a greater chance of missing runner’s times as they cross the finish line.

FINISH LINE

We provide these finish line enhancements to your race:

  • A finishing chute leading runners to the finish line
  • Finish line banner
  • Large race clock

Our services include the set-up and breakdown of the finish line area. This is included with all events we time.

EVENT RESULTS

Race results are posted on our website within 24 hours of the event, usually the same day.

A link and/or digital file is provided to link to or post results on your race website.

OPTIONAL SERVICES
