Race Timing


Race TimingRTS Sports (Run To Succeed) proudly provides professional race timing and management services across a five state region including Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Southeast Missouri, Western Indiana, Western Tennessee and beyond.

 The company began offering race management and timing services in Southern Illinois.  Since then, we have became Southern Illinois’ premier race management and race timing service providing event timing for road races, trail runs, obstacle courses, triathlons, bicycle races, cross country meets, and more.



Our services have expanded to include the following locations and their surrounding areas:

all of Southern Illinois

St. Louis, Missouri & region

Cape Girardeau, Missouri & region

Louisville, Kentucky & region

Paducah, Kentucky & region

Evansville, Indiana & region

Clarksville, Tennessee & region

Nashville, Tennessee & region


We offer two styles of professional race timing (listed below).  In most cases, a non refundable deposit is required to book a race.  It is imperative that you let us know the date of your race early enough to book our race timing services as our calendar does fill up quickly. Generally, we prioritize our services on a “first come first serve basis.” Loyal clients are one of the few exceptions to this rule.

What makes us different than the competition? Our races are timed by professionals and not volunteers. We understand the importance and value of volunteers, but we believe your race deserves to be timed by experienced professionals. All of Run To Succeed’s race timing services include live results posted during the race, finish results provided without delays, an electronic list and/or printed list of finish results provided on site and an electronic copy of finish results provided afterwards to be distributed as you choose. We now offer an app to add to your timing experience offering registration links, results, course maps and much much more!

Run To Succeed’s race timing services include setting up a finish line at no additional expense.  We also offer an inflatable finish line at a minimal additional fee (pictured below), which can be used as a platform for sponsorship banners to be displayed.  Our professional race timing software is very accurate and aids in eliminating mistakes. Your race will be listed on our race calendar with either a link back to your registration page and/or to an attached race flyer. We now offer online race registration for any event at no additional cost to you.

Chip timing system automatically records start and finish times as you cross the start/finish line.

Live results are available throughout the race posted on computer kiosks.

The chips will be supplied by Run To Succeed, but is the responsibility of the race director to distribute along with race bibs.  

We prefer to use one-time use disposable bib tags. If reusable chips are used, they must be collected at the end of the event or a $5 charge will be applied per non returned chip.


*  We may occasionally request that a volunteer be provided to assist our timing professionals. A $25 fee will be included with all timing packages if the race director is unable to provide at least one volunteer.

*  Run To Succeed staff will often travel to many of our races we are timing. If your race is considered out of market, we will add a necessary travel fee based on a per mile formula.
