SET YOUR EVENT APART
Professional Race Timing and Finish Line Management Services For Races Large and Small
Our philosophy is Your race's success is our success. Ease of registration, accurate timing, quick access to the results, and the appearance of a finish line greatly reflect on the quality and integrity of a race. Our goal is to eliminate your stress on this aspect of your race. We are experienced in timing road and trail races, High School and Collegiate cross country meets (includes uploading results to TFRRS), bike races, open water swims, and triathlons. We will provide great customer service to both you and your race participants.
We offer a choice of timing technologies: the state of the art MyLaps BibTag disposable chip timing system, and the bar-code scanning/tag-pull method for smaller races.
We offer more race related and personalized services than any of the other Denver area timing companies.
With our website and our email distribution list, we will help promote your event. We build a page on this website for each race we time, and we email out our race calendar to our distribution list once or twice each month during the race season.
RACE RESULTS POLICIES
It is a universal standard that anyone who registers for an event and successfully completes the race appears in the results. Read more here.
GUN TIME VS CHIP TIME
When it comes to awards, a winner of a race is determined by who crosses the finish line first, thus are based on Gun Time. Read more here.
MyLaps is considered the most reliable chip timing system with a read rate approaching 99.8%. Prestigious races like the Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon, and Houston Marathon, now use the MyLaps Bibtag system. This system also eliminates the need and expense of collecting chips at the finish. For runners, the disposable runner's chip is a thin, lightweight antenna stuck on to the back of each participants bib. For swim, cycling, triathlon, and mud runs, the chip is embedded in a disposable lightweight foam band that goes around the athlete's ankle.
BAR-CODE SCANNING TIMING
Bar-code scanning (tag-pull) timing is how all races were timed before chip timing was invented. This timing method is ideal for smaller races were your timing budget is limited. Start and finish line banners, and runner chute equipment, is included in our bar-code scanning timing packages.
INDIVIDUALIZED PRINTED RACE RESULTS
To get personalized results to your runners faster, we have created the FLT Race Resutls Ticket software. Individual runners can come to the timing table at the finish, give us their bib number, and we will print out a ticket that has their personal race results. Each ticket will have your race logo, the name, location, and date of your race, the runner's name, and their complete results including their time, pace, overall place, Division place (gender and age group), and their Gender place.
ONLINE RACE REGISTRATION
We are happy to set up your online registration for no additional charge. We use GetMeRegistered.com. The fees they pass on to the runners are more reasonable, they don't fill up the registration process trying to sell your participants magazines, and their site is more user friendly, both for the participant and the race director. And most importantly, they do not sell your participants contact information to other businesses and races.
We offer a variety of other services to accommodate your needs. We are runners and Race Directors, so we know the challenges you are facing. Based in the Denver, Colorado area, we are happy to travel to time your race.

I’m so thankful I chose your company for this first Edgewater 5k. You have been so helpful!
Joel Newton - Edgewater Collective Executive Director, Edgewater CO
This was our first year for this event and we selected Finish Line Timing to handle our chip timing. We were delighted!
I've managed several races and have used other timers - Paul and his crew excelled from "start to finish". We had great communication in the weeks leading up to the event, he handled the task of bib assignment, attaching chips, etc.
On the morning of the event, his team showed up on time, got set up right away and did a really good job of briefing our registration volunteers on the process of getting folks checked in. The way Paul had things organized and sorted made the process practically seamless.
From the first gun to the last finisher Finish Line Timing stayed on top of every detail - even managing some anomalies like a 10K runner switching to the 5K and not telling anyone. We even threw him a curve ball or two on race day and they handled it smoothly!
Paul is a pro and his technology for chip timing is excellent.
