How does it work?

You submit your entry list to us 24 hours before the race, so we can allocate a chip to the competitior.

Included in the price is 500 re-usable chips which are simply attached to the shoe through laces.

These are to be distributed at registration (usually with the number).

If the race starts & finishes in the same position (or very close), we can record the start and finish of each competitor.  Otherwise we will record the finish times only based on the official mass start time.

At the finish we will collect the chips from the competitor.

Once the last finisher has crossed, we will check the data and publish results instantly.

Additional Extras:

As an event organiser, we understand that one package does not suit every event.  To tailor the event to your requirements we offer numerous additional services:

On the day entry Including Debit/Credit Card Machine – £0.50 per competitor
Live & Text Results – £0.50 per competitior
Bib & Disposable Chip – £2.00 per competitior
