Accurate race timing is one of the most important factors in organizing a successful race. Gone are the days of stopwatches, pulling tags off of runner’s bibs and other archaic race timing techniques. The days of chip timed races have arrived. SpectaSport brings race organizers the convenience, efficiency, and accuracy of modern race timing techniques.
What is Chip Timing
- It’s more accurate than it’s predecessors. Imagine you’re passing out awards at your race and someone notices a discrepancy—you’ve given out the wrong award! That’s a terrible time to figure out that a participant has made a registration error. SpectaSport providers runners with their results instantaneously, and if there are any mistakes or inaccuracies with their info, they can suggest feedback right away and you’ll avoid chaos at the awards ceremony.
- Chip timing has changed the game for race organizers. SpectaSport uses the most advanced race timing technology to make race day go smoothly. It functions like EZ Pass, recording times as each runner passes over timing mat checkpoints that interact with the chip. We provide race bibs embedded with chips so each individual’s times are precisely recorded.
- SpectaSport provides everything you need. We have a variety of packages for every race organizer. Our most popular timing package, Charity Star, includes online registration, disposable chips, three results kiosks (where participants can check their times instantly), and a checkered flag finish line.
At SpectaSport, our motto is that ‘good enough’ is not good enough. Your race deserves to be timed efficiently and accurately. We pride ourselves in making your job as a race organizer easier and in helping the big day run smoothly. In addition to race timing, our years of experience allow us to help with the other organizational details you may have questions about.
