Timing Services

Race Timing Unlimited offers electronic chip based results for races up to 50,000 finishers. Hey - we're unlimited - challenge us to go beyond the 50,000 runner limit. Each runner will wear an electronic chip on the lower leg that will record start, finish and whatever splits that you desire. Gun time and elasped chip time results are available. Race Timing Unlimited uses Winning Time Technology.

If you have a race with less than 200 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).

Charges are based per registered runner with a minimum required payment plus travel expenses. Separate start and intermediate timing points are charged based on the desired width of the timing point.

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.
