Timing and Scoring Services
Race Works Gruppetto offers the highest quality race timing and scoring services in the Mid-Atlantic and the Midwest. All of our chip and video timing systems are Olympic Quality or better. Plus our custom scoring software allows us to post results almost instantly.
We normally achieve 100% accurate results, that we are able to report immediately at races. There is a reason why we chosen as the Offical Timing and Scoring Company of the 2015 Fairfax Police & Fire World Games - The LARGEST Sporting Event in the World!!!
We tailor our services to provide your race the best results possible within your bugdet. We put on a lot of our own races, so we know what you need to succeed.
No Waiting for Results
In addition to printed results, we can provide "Results Kiosks". These are touch screen computers linked directly to our timing systems. As soon as a racer crosses the finish line, they can get their results.
No need to collect chips
We use the latest chip technologies to time races. We have 21 different chips to choose from to best suit your race. All of our chips are thin weather-proof stickers that simply attach to the racer's number. We also offer two different indestructable re-usable chips for events like triathlons and adventure races.
No chip collection means less need for volunteers at the race, and a better experience for racers.
Super accurate & Great for Race Banners
Overhead antennas on a truss system offer a number of advantages. One, they are super accurate - we normally get 100% reads, with an accuarcy of 0.001 seconds. We can provide overhead systems up to 64-feet wide
For special application timing
For open-road races where overhead or mat-based systems won't work or are not allowed.
A good example is a Road Cycling Time Trial, where the road is open to traffic. We can set up side read antennas, and still achieve 100% accurate reads to 0.001 seconds.
Real-Time Web Results
Rapid reporting on our scoring engine
For all of our races, we include race results "rapid reported" on our website results engine, linked directly to our timing systems
Your racers and their fans can go to the website and get their result about 2 minutes after they cross the finish line. We even have a mobile website so that racers can look from a smartphone.
Racers love to hear their names!
Put a the personal touch on your race. We have the best announcer system in the business.
We provides up to two laptops and two iPad Mini's all linked wirelessly to our timing systems. These allow your announcers to walk around, and announce all of the racers crossing the finish line.
Super durable and waterproof
We use the latest chip technologies to time races. We have two different reusable passive chips perfectly suited to differnet wet race types like triathlons and mud runs.
We also have two different active chip systems that offer 1/1000 th second accuracy, and perfect read rates not matter the race conditions.
A build in finish line with fast & simple setup
When overhead anntenna's won't work with your course, or when very fast setup is needed, we offer mat-based readers. Our mats come with a build in finish line. We can provided mat-based timing points up to 48-feet wide.
For open road races, wilderness points, and perfect accuracy
Our active chip wire systems use nothing more than a long wire taped to the road or put accross a trail. Its a bit more expensive option, but allows perfectly accuarate timing where other timers fear to tread. So we can time where other can not.
The Timing Van!!!
A professional look, and a race mobile base station
Our customers call it the "Scoring Palace". Our timing van adds a new level of professonalism to your event by providing an attractive, contained package at the finish line. No matter the size of your race- the finish line looks like a big event!
Many races have commented that they love the look of the van and finish line.
Those little extras to make your race stand out
We have race clocks, sound systems, PA systems, and race signs to spice up your event...
New for 2016, we have metal fencing/barriers that are used to set up a "finish shoot" for the finish line.
Multiple Timing Points
For Triathlons, Durathons, and real-time racer tracking
Race Works has multiple timing systems. So we can easily provide separate Start & Finish lines, as well as up to 5 intermediate timing points along the course.
We are also one of the only timers in the country that can provide wilderness timing points linked to our systems. We have small mini-readers that are prefect for remote timing points
