Disposable Bib Chip Timing

Runner's Edge Race Timing has purchased the newest technology from RFID Timing Systems, based out of Australia. The Ultra is the newest technology available, using UHF RFID technology allowing for low-cost "disposable" RFID tags (bib tags). RFID Timing Systems provide flexibility in networking and real-time results capability. The antennae mats are the lowest profile UHF ground-based mats on the market, providing for super-smooth mat transitions for both runners and cyclists.

The advantages of the “disposable” Bib Chip are:
Fool-proof timing tag remains a part of the bib - Easier to distribute pre-race
Once a participant picks up their packet they are done, just pin their bib on and they are good to go
Attractive and professional appearance for your finish line
Free flowing finish line - Fewer volunteers needed – No corral area, eliminates post-race bottlenecks
Frees up volunteers to help in other key areas
No post race sorting of chips and no charges for lost chips
