Our mobile timing office
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 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.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GUN TIME AND NET TIME
When it comes to awards, a winner of a race is determined by who crosses the finish line first. Therefore, overall and age category results 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.
TAG PULL TIMING
Tag-pull timing is how all races where 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.

Each ticket will have your race logo, race name, location, date, the runner's name, and their complete results including their time, pace, overall place, division place (gender and age group), and their gender place.

FLT RACE REGISTRATION
FLT Race Registration is not online registration - there are already plenty of options. FLT Race Registration a stand alone program that takes the place of registration forms filled out by hand. This program is ideal for races that have pre-race expos or bib pickup where registrations are taken. Runners register on one of our laptops and then print out a race customized race registration form complete with your waiver. The participant signs the form and take it to your team to pay and collect their assigned bib. This eliminates the need to decipher poor handwriting AND having to do data entry. Contact us for details.
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.

This was our first year working with Finish Line Timing after using our previous timing company for the past 7 years. We were nervous moving to a new timing company as a few of our events are unique and have a few challenges for the timer. Paul put all of my worries to rest and is absolutely amazing to work with. We used Paul for 3 separate events this year; a triathlon, a stair climb, and a trail series (5k through 50k). Every single race went off without a hitch in large part to Paul and his crew. Paul does everything he can to make the race organizers job as easy as it can be. He is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help make your event the best that it can be. We will continue to use Paul for all of our races/events for the Town of Castle Rock.

We used Finish Line Timing at our 5k event this year and really appreciated everything Paul, the owner, provided, as well as his expertise. He is interested in your race succeeding and he has lots of helpful information for the novice race director as well as a more experienced director. He provides immediate results to the runners, which was greatly appreciated. The timing process went off without a hitch, as he is very prepared. Paul was very helpful and quick to respond to our questions. We will definitely be using Finish Line Timing for next year’s race!
