The participant picks up their packet, they are done, just pin 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

Thank you so much for all your help and professional race input to make our Hess Lake 10K run/walk a success. As a co-race director with so many details of putting this event together not having to worry about race timing, posting of results or accuracy was a huge relief so that we could use our time in other areas for the run. Look forward to working with you again for our fourth annual.

Wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all the time you put into our Son of a Sailor 10K walk/run.
