Semi-Permanent Timing Installations

Combining virtual events with real race feeling

Offer your participants the possibility to race on a real course with official timing, without setting up an event that breaks COVID restrictions. Installing timing points for several days or weeks is the key factor here.

Event Reference

Salzkammergut Trophy 2020

Bad Goisern, Austria

The largest MTB event in Austria could not take place in 2020 due to the pandemic. Instead, a semi-permanent MTB race track was installed on the original course. For this purpose, track boxes were set up along the route, which were switched on during the day. Some were permanently supplied with electricity via connected solar panels. The participants were able to drive their personal race and receive official results within three months.

We have compiled more details on this project in this case study:

This solution benefits both, events and athletes:

  • Staying connected to athletes
    Being forced to cancel an event again carries the risk of being forgotten by participants, volunteers and sponsors. With this solution, there is something to sign up for and talk about!
  • Offering real race feeling
    Participants can race any time and as often as they want. Offical ranks and results are published online. As everybody takes the same route, results are truly compareable. Depending on local regulations, even groups of athletes could meet for their own race.
  • Visibility for sponsors
    With a bib being provided to all participants, sponsors can present themselves and distribute advertising material with the race package.

Setup

The RACE RESULT Track Box Passive is set up at the start/finish line and optionally at split points. It reads all bib transponders in range and sends the data with date, time and location to your RACE RESULT 12 event file.
Ideally, the bib transponders should appear within a range of four meters. A detection needs a direct line of sight!
The Track Boxes have enough battery for 12-18 hours and can also be powered by solar panel or external power source. After setup, the whole solution works autonomously.
