Timing solution for
Road Race

For a road race, the passive system with disposable transponders on the back of the bib is the perfect solution.If start and finish are at the same place, chip times can be taken.Otherwise you will record gun times (don't worry, a few hundred participants cross the start line within a few seconds anyway). Alternatively, you can also rent a second system for the start.

Vancouver Sun Run

Vancouver, Canada

Canada’s largest 10k road race since its inception in 1985 and one of the largest 10k in North America. In 2022, more than 20,000 runners took place. The race is timed by Sportstats using the RACE RESULT Passive System. They use the Foldable Ground Antenna at start and finish and add a backup timing line at both.

For a small race, one single Passive System is absolutely sufficient. Set it up at the finish line and connect it to a laptop to receive all finish times automatically and in real time without any additional effort.
