Timing Races Since 1995


Finish Line Mat Detail Mat Detail

A Michigan Based Race Timing Company - Since 1995. We provide finish line timing services for all types of running and racing events including Road and Trail races, Triathlons/Duathons, Bike Races and Time Trials, High School and Collegiate Cross Country Championship meets. We provide our chip timing services in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

Runner’s Edge Race Timing provides “State of the Art” RFID timing technology from Ipico Sports. Our Dual Frequency RFID Sportag overcomes the limitations experienced by conventional Reader-Talk-First sport timing systems. By combining two technologies—Dual Frequency (DF ) and the IP-X RFID interface with passive tags we are able to achieve unmatched performance. Our readers can read up to 120 Sportags simultaneously. This gives you - Great Results, Every Time!

With the use of Ipico Sports Sportag Timing Systems Runner’s Edge provides you a “chip” timing system that has been used at some of the world’s largest races. Most notably the 2007 BolderBOULDER 10K (51,000 participants), 2008 BolderBOULDER 10K (54,000 participants), and 2009 BolderBOULDER 10K (51,000 participants) - at which I was onsite on the timing team for all three years.
