You’ve found a creative name for your event, booked your date, and started promoting, but what about 5K timing equipment? In the middle of all the organizational details, perhaps the most important is ensuring that you have a way to time your race accurately and get contestants their results fast.
5K Timing Equipment: What Do You Need?
Up to Date Technology
At SpectaSport, we believe in “contemporary timing for a connected world.” In a world where we can get information fast, why should race results be any different? Our services enable online registration and easy online race results. In fact, runners can check these results as soon as they’ve crossed the finish line from a mobile device or from one of the results kiosks we will provide.
Chip Timing Experts
Stopwatches, pulling tags off runners’ bibs, and other archaic methods are out and chip timing is in. Chip timing works similarly to an EZ Pass and can track each contestant live through a chip embedded racing bib. SpectaSport’s race timing experts use chip timing methods because it is the most accurate timing equipment on the market.
Efficient Methods to Correct Potential Errors
Even in the most meticulously organized event it’s not unheard of for there to be mistakes. What matters is that there is a quick and simple way to correct errors. For example, if two contestants accidentally switched bibs and their timing data was logged incorrectly, they can discover this immediately upon viewing their results and have it changed online. This ensures that you can present the awards ceremony with confidence.
A Budget Conscious Solution
While we work with events of all sizes, we specialize in making Charity 5ks affordable for events of 300 participants or less. Our Charity Star Package was designed with these in mind and includes chip timing, online registration, 3 event kiosks, and a professional checkered flag finish line.
