Timing solution for
Trail Running

With our passive systems it is now easier than ever to time trail runs, the Track Box Passive makes those hard to reach splits easily accessible. The boxes can be carried to remote points by helpers and activated with just the push of a button. The box then sends all the data live to the timing software over cellular network. Participants only need to wear their bib number with disposable transponder.

Event Reference

Pitz Alpine Glacier Trail

Tirol, Austria

The Pitz Alpine Glacier Trail 2021 was timed by Timit using the Passive System. The ~1.000 participants could decide between distances of up to 105 km. Such an event is the perfect terrain for the Track Box Passive. The density at the split points is low, volunteers can easily carry the boxes to the timing location and set them up. The boxes are controlled remotely with RACE RESULT 12 software and send their timing data live. At major timing points (start, finish) with a higher density of runners, the combination of Decoder and Ground Antenna is ideal. For the whole event, a total of 7 Decoders and 7 passive Track Boxes were used. The timing could be managed by only one person!


If the start and finish are in the same place, you only need a single timing system with decoder and ground antenna. Set the system up at the finish line, connect it to a laptopand you're ready to start providing real-time results.

The Track Box Passive is set up at the checkpoints. Runners are detected across trails up to four meters wide, provided the density of runners is not too high. The timing data is sent live to the timing software (your laptop needs an internet connection for this). The Track Box can be operated with RACE RESULT SIM cards, these offer above-average reception on any available mobile network.

If the start and finish are at different places, you can use the gun time (every participant has the same start time), install another timing system at the start or you may even have time to move your system from start to finish.

In RACE RESULT 12, our timing software, use the "Standard Event" template. This provides a perfect starting point and may already bring all you need.



Receives the signals from the transponders, calculates the exact finish time and provides the data to the scoring software like RACE RESULT 12 in real time. Internal battery for 8-10 hours, integrated 4G module, precise GPS time, 2 ethernet ports.
