Timing: Open Triathlon

For mass participation triathlons, the passive system is a cost effective alternative. Athletes wear a HuTag at the ankle. This transponder is waterproof, reusable and offers a accuracy of 0.2 seconds. Still, water affects the detection quality. This needs to be considered during the hardware setup.

Event Reference

"10 Freunde" Triathlon


Triathlon team competition series with thousands of participants per event, where each team member in a team of 10 friends does a tenth of a long distance triathlon. The passive solution with HuTag transponders and ground antennas is reasonable for such mass sports events and with 0,2 s sufficiently precise.

The participants wear the HuTag on their ankles, the swim exit is timed a few meters from the water. This avoids missed reads, that may happen due to transponders being too wet. Further timing points are lap counts for the bike, and the run, as well as entry and exit of the transition zone and the finish line.


The HuTag needs to be worn on the ankle - above the swim suit! In our example here, all participants start from the beach. The timing system at the start is used to check who is currently in the water.
For the system on swim exit, make sure to keep away from water. Ideally, athletes need to run a few meters before passing the ground antenna. This helps to dry off the HuTag and improve read rates.
Please note you cannot use a 6m- or 8.4m-Extension with HuTags.

In RACE RESULT 12 use the "Triathlon" template, which offers you exactly these timing points and all necessary results.
