Race Timing Unlimited offers disposable tag, reusable chip and manual timing services for up to
50,000 finishers. Hey - we're unlimited - challenge us to go beyond the 50,000 runner limit.
For disposable tag timing, the Chronotrack bib tag system is used with start and finish times recored and whatever splits that you desire, reporting gun time and personal times.
For reusable chip timing, the Winning Time passive system is used. Each runner will wear an electronic chip on the lower leg that will record gun finish time.
Recording start times is also possible. Reporting gun time and personal times is possible.
If you have a race with less than 350 registered runners, we have the crews, equipment,
systems and know how to produce an exceptionally accurate timed race using manual methods. Preliminary
results will be provided for awards at the race site. Final results later that evening. (We like to watch the finish
video and see all the smiling faces).
Depending on the option you pick, there is a minumum charge that includes all travel expenses and all special configurations, and will cover a base number of registered runners.
Then, a per registered runner fee for registered runners in excess of the base number.
Course Measurement and USATF Ceritfication
Having measured and received USATF certification on over 100 courses in the last 16 years,
we are available to measure courses over any solid surface. Based on layout, USATF certification
can be received. Also, we can help layout a race course and provide our experienced insight.
We charge $70 per hour for race measurement services. For courses that you have designed, a typical course takes about 1 hour per kilometer.
On Line Registration Services
Races that we time and/or host may use our on-line registration portal.
