Over 15,000 athletes ran in the 41st annual Gate River Run 15 km and 5 km in Jacksonville, Florida on March 10, 2018. Doug Alred is the Race Director for the Gate River Run and owner of 1st Place Sports. He has been very happy with the performance of the race|result system and says: “The read rates are fantastic.” His timing team relied on race|result not only for accurate finish results, but also for split times and to award the $1,000 prize for the fastest downhill mile from the top of Hart Bridge to the finish.
Our race|result team was at Running USA Industry Conference in Austin, Texas. As every year, this conference is a great opportunity to connect with race directors, timing professionals and industry partners. We are excited about all the interest in our technology and look forward to a busy timing year ahead. If you missed us in Austin this year, we hope to see you in Puerto Rico at Running USA 2019.
Sportstats, the timing company for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series, is proud to announce its commitment to using race|result bib numbers and timing technology at all US Rock ‘n’ Roll events over the next three years.
Marc Roy, founder and CEO of Sportstats, says: “race|result offers the easiest and most streamlined process for custom bibs with tags. We use personalized bibs with runners' names at all Rock ‘n’ Roll races, so fast turn-around is crucial. The automated process race|result uses to encode and place tags on bibs saves us a lot of time and reduces stress leading up to the race. On race day, the quick set up of the foldable mats with race|result systems is another big time saver for us.”
This past weekend, over 21,000 registered runners competed in Tempe Arizona. To see a short clip about how the race|result timing transponders were programmed and made their way onto the custom bib numbers, click here. Arizona was the first event in the 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series. The event included distances for everyone: marathon, half marathon, 10k, 5k as well as a 1 mile and a KiDS ROCK event. The Sportstats timing team used 23 race|result systems on course and streamed live results data through rtrt.me.
The team at race|result USA has reached a new milestone with tag production. The printer, which was nicknamed the “Print Monster USA 1”, has been running non-stop at Mark Courtney’s office for 475 days. On January 9, 2018, it printed the 1,000,000th race|result tag for US timers. With the rapid growth we’re experiencing in the US market, we expect to reach the 2 million mark by the end of the year. Note that these numbers are only tags on a roll printed in the US and do not include tags on bib numbers or any tag orders printed at our headquarters in Germany for the US market. Congrats to Mark and thank you for all the hard work in getting these tag orders out!
MYLAPS CEO, Camiel Slaats, and race|result CEO, Sönke Petersen, met early December in Germany in an effort to peacefully resolve their companies’ patent dispute surrounding their timing hardware technologies.

Andre Yelle (Sportstats West): ”The switch to race|result has allowed us to make so many improvements in how we time this event. With the red mats and upgraded decoders, even with road closure delays, we had no worries about getting everything set up on time. […] Thank you to you and your team for the constant innovation!”
