What makes Run To Succeed’s race timing services different than the competition? If you are looking to jump on board with one of the fastest growing fundraising activities in the country by hosting a 5K race, then chances are you are going to need a race timer. Booking a race timing service can be one of the biggest challenges for a race director, especially a first time race director.
Despite a recent movement away from timed races to non-timed events, most runners still value accurate timing. When runners invest their valuable time into training, they expect to be rewarded with an accurate race finishing result.
What criteria should you be looking for in a race timing service?
Race timing expense, experience of the timers, geographical location, and the timing hardware and software used are all important factors to consider when making your decision. We at Run To Succeed understand the value of every charitable dollar earned, therefore, we offer competitive pricing at a high level of service. Our timing services are readily available for anything from a 1 mile fun run to a marathon or greater and we are willing to travel to any destination to meet your needs.
Why Run To Succeed is the premier race management and timing company in Southern Illinois, Western Kentucky, and Southeast Missouri.
All of Run To Succeed’s race timers are experienced professionals bringing a professional approach to your event. Our timers will respond to your emails and phone calls in a timely manner, show up to your event on time, provide a first class service, and answer any questions you may have. Whether you choose our standard method of timing or state of the art RFID chip timing, your event will be timed using professional race timing hardware and software. All of our trained timers have a background in competitive running and also act as a cheerleader for the participants providing that extra motivation often needed near the race conclusion.
All of Run To Succeed’s race timing services include live results posted during the race on a 40″ LED monitor, an electronic list of finish results (generated by age, gender, category, etc.) provided on site, and an electronic copy of finish results provided afterwards to be distributed as the race director chooses. Run To Succeed’s race timing services include setting up a finish line when requested at no additional expense. Our race timing professionals will stay after the race is completed throughout the award presentation. In the rare event that a flaw is detected in the timing results, the timer is available to address the situation. Our race timing services include promoting your event on the Run To Succeed event calendar and we will post your race on the “Running in the USA” event calendar.
