Services

8 years of race timing experience, we currently time over 30 races a year ranging from 100 to 2,500 runners. Based in Hertfordshire. We provide chip timing for races and registration services making race directors jobs that much easier. We managed race bib orders on your behalf, and can take race entries right up to the eve of the race and also on the day entries.

All results are published live on the web as soon as runners pass the finish line, and finishers receive a text message and email confirming their times and a link to the full results.

We can chip time your race, provide participant registration services , manage bib design and ordering, chip purchase, and process your paper and on the day entries.

Our registration website can be used for any event not just running; canoeing, cycling, triathlon, mtb.

How Are We Different?

Races Online prides itself on being in the position to provide key elements that separate us from most other timing companies:

  • We treat every event we time as if we were timing one of our own races. We’re event directors, not just race timers.
  • We don’t believe in cutting corners or charging extra for services that we feel should be standard.
  • We don’t have a “B” team.
  • Timing clients are not simply our clients, but rather viewed as partners. As a partner, your race receives exposure on our website and social media; which is exposure you can’t buy (we don’t sell ads).
