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 of this aspect of your race. We are experienced in timing road, trail, and bike races, High School and Collegiate cross country meets (includes uploading results to TFRRS), and open water swims. We will provide great customer service to both you and your race participants.
We offer more race related services than most timing companies.
With our website and our email distribution list, we help promote your event through our once to twice monthly race calendar emailed to our distribution list.
We offer a choice of timing methods: the tried and true traditional tag-pull method for smaller races, and the state of the art MyLaps BibTag disposable chip timing system.
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.
Traditional (tag-pull) timing is how all races were timed before chip timing was invented. This timing method is ideal for smaller races were your budget is limited. In addition, start and finish line banners and equipment are included in our standard traditional timing packages.
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 also work with BIBS, a free Andrioid and Apple app for smartphones where a runner can enter their bib number and see their results.
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 available to time races anywhere in the country.

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.
