The RaceTimers services offers the UK’s premier chip timing service tailored entirely for running events. Our zero hassle service allows race organisers of all sizes to leave the timing of the event to us, allowing you to focus on delivering a great race without the added stress of timing.


The RaceTimers offer flexible Chip Timing for all Races With our super flexible event set up, we can create a service that matches any type of event. If your event has multiple laps, waves or start times, categories, we can accommodate with no performance impact on your results. We can even update your entry lists during the race to make sure that all of your runners get their time, in time. The RaceTimers really can produce accurate and timely race results in any situation!

Impress your audience with the most advanced live results display in use anywhere . Select the information that you want to display, adjust font sizes and colours. You can display interesting facts on screen if you have them. For multi-lap events, display the current leader, time behind, fastest laps times, category positions, etc. Or have a display customised specifically for your race. As entrants cross the line their name and details will appear on screen, generally scrolling from the top down, so that the most recent entrant appears at the top. You can even take entries on the day and we can get them in the system before the runners finish!


We have a variety of Gazebos and Marquees that can be rented for your race day.
