Our timing systems can cater for a few hundred or a few thousand competitors giving instant results to all competitors as they cross the finish line.

Inclusive of the timing basic package/setup we offer the following timing splits:


Gun Time
It’s the official race time and is the time that the Runner takes to complete the course from the time the gun was fired. Of course if you take say 60 seconds to cross the line this additional time is part of your race time.

Chip Time
This is the time that the Runner actually takes from the time they crossed the start line to the time they crossed the finish line. However, this time has no relevance to the results whatsoever and is used for information purposes only.
