Road Racing Disposable Chip Timing

Interested in our chip timing solutions for your running race?

Here at Crossroads Events and Timing we use Innovative Timing System's Jaguar System to time all of our events. We use ITS's technology because they have a superior form of technology that allows us to provide our clients with incredibly accurate times, read rates, and unique results deliverables. You can read in detail specifications about the Jaguar system we use here: Why Jaguar?

For the vast majority of running races we use ITS's disposable K-Chip which is essentially a small sticker with a programmed RFID chip inside it. This chip is stuck to the inside of a participant's bib# and is so small and lightweight the majority of runners do not even realize they are wearing it! This is the perfect solution for our clients as it speeds up the registration and post-race process. Just give them a bib# with the pre-programmed chip stuck to it and your done! No worrying about collecting them afterwards!

This type of solution works similar to bats using echolocation. Our system is constantly sending out a signal which interacts with the chips and sends their reads back. Our system continually reads them as they draw closer to the finish line and then cuts their time off exactly when they cross through the finish arch.

All of our running race clients receive:

  • A Professional Grade Aluminum Truss Arch
  • A Disposable Timing Chip, Bib#, and Safety Pins for Each Participant
  • A Large LED Timing Clock
  • A Touch Screen Results Kiosk with a Receipt Printer (As Available)
    • If all of our Kiosks are booked but by clients whom booked earlier we can provide you with scrolling results on a t.v. screen
  • Instantaneous Printed Results
  • Online Registration Setup and Management (If needed)
    • We use itsyourrace.com to manage your online registrations. We like to use this platform because it allows us to offer you an event webpage, mobile phone race app, interactive clickable results, interactive course maps, finisher certificates, and so much more! However if you would prefer to work with another online registration company we can accommodate that as well.

Other Optional Race Timing Upgrades

We also offer other awesome timing services that can be custom added to your event like:

  • Multiple Timing Points - Separate Start / Finish Systems, Multiple Split Points Along the Course, etc.
  • Live Results Uploaded to a Webpage and Mobile Phone Race App
  • Multiple Results Kiosks or Multiple T.V.s with Scrolling Results
  • Announcer's Stations Where Announcer's Can See and Announce Participant's Names Before They Finish
