TIMING OPTIONS

Disposable Chip Timing with MyLaps BibTag System

Chip timing systems require that athletes wear a small, lightweight chip that uniquely identifies them as they cross strategically placed, electronic mats. In its most basic and common form, chip timing electronically handles the task of collecting and processing results at the end of the race. We use the MyLaps BibTag system which offers two disposable chip options: BibTags and Multisport bands.

BibTags are for running races. The small, lightweight chip is attached to the back of the bibs, so distribution is very easy, and, nothing needs to be collected at the finish. No tracking down runners who didn’t return their chips, and no extra fees for replacing those missing chips. Runners wear the bib unobstructed on their chest and our equipment does the rest.

Multisport chips are lightweight foam bands that go around a participant’s ankles. These are perfect for open water swims, triathlons, and mud runs.

MyLaps is considered the most reliable system with a read rate approaching 99.8%. Races like The Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon, and Houston Marathon are using the MyLaps system. You can learn more about the technology at MyLaps.com.

How to wear the MYLAPS BibTag - Instructional Video

Bar-Code/Tag Pull Timing

Bar-Code timing, or tag-pull timing, is a manual method that was used before chip timing equipment was invented. It utilizes a timing computer (we use TimeMachines), and tags that are part of the bibs. As each runner and walker crosses the finish, a time is entered in the TimeMachine which is then transmitted to our timing software on a laptop. The finishers are kept in order they crossed the finish line in the chute and at the end of the chute, the tags on the bibs are then pulled and put on a stringer in the order participants finished. The tags are then scanned into the timing software and are matched, in order, to the finish times collected by the TimeMachine to provide the results. Benefits of this method are it is less expensive, and the results can be produced just about as fast as chip timing for small races.

Included With Traditional Timing:

  • Traditional timing using TimeMachines
  • Standard finish line structure or banner stands, Start banner stands, runner chute, Electronic Race Clock, Results Posting stand

FLT RACE REGISTRATION

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 and data entry. Contact us for details.
