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.

All races are timed by professional certified race timers. Both styles of RTS’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!

We 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. 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 offer online race registration for any event at no additional cost to you if you use our timing services.
