As a leader in the timing industry, we are proud to support over 300 events a year throughout the Northwest United States. We have supported national championship events as well as large 8,000+ person events to small community charity events. Services we provide are online registration, results, race chip timing, onsite registration, finish line promotion including announcer, pa system, arches and finish line clock, and personalized race apps with live gps tracking.
