If you are planning a charity or other type or race in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Delaware, you need to have the proper timing clocks for running events. Why? When you have a trusted timing service operating at your race, you won’t have to worry about the results being inaccurate or otherwise problematic as the runners cross the finish line. Correct results are vital to the success of any race large or small. Runners who have a positive experience are more likely to come back next year.
Why Chip Timing Clocks are Important for Your Race
Recording the times of every single runner who enters your race can be challenging when using a stopwatch or a video camera system. You can make this easier on your race volunteers by acquiring chip timing clocks that are custom designed for your specific race needs. The benefits of using SpectaSport as your timing partner are numerous, including the following:
- Record accurate split times
- Prevent runners from cheating
- Provide race updates instantaneously
- Provide compensation for slow starts because of a crowded starting point
Keep in mind that there is also a LOT more to race timing than just the clock. Results also have to be converted into placements for overall and (most importantly) age group awards.
Custom Designed Race Bibs
With SpectaSport, you can even personalize your race bibs based on your organizations branding (colors, logo, etc.) or the race’s theme (e.g. green for St. Paddy’s Day races). These bibs are included in all of our race timing packages. That includes our Charity Star Race Timing Package, which is perfect for non-profit organizations hosting a race for under 200 participants.
