Event Services

In addition to race timing, we can provide the following items directly or through our network of trusted associates.

Online registration
Keeping track of entry forms and race numbers can be a challenge. We partner with four of the leading online registration vendors in the country, to provide you with options for a convenient, secure, and inexpensive online registration process.
Finish line video
High-quality video of each finisher is just a click away. Use the video to give runners a nice memory of the event while also opening up additional sponsor opportunities for your race. We can overlay any type of logo to make sure your race name or sponsor gets seen!
Finish line setup and other race supplies
Make the finish worth the effort. We have access to an inflatable finish line structure, poles, banners, and enough flagging for even the longest chutes.

We can also coordinate access to bike racks, swim buoys, orange fencing and posts, course signs, race numbers, and awards.
Get more racers with a smart marketing plan! We offer advertising on our website, and can direct you to other trusted race marketing resources to get the word out about your race.
Website development
Need a new website for your event, or just want to update your existing one? Our website staff will make sure you have the best online presence possible.
Race Announcer
We can provide contacts to race announcers who will be the emcee for your event, play background music, and announce finishers throughout the race.
Course certification
A properly measured course is an important part of a quality race. Runners will be guaranteed an accurate distance by having a race certified to USA Track & Field standards. We can provide contacts to get your course certified.
Course Mapping
Add the extras to your website and/or brochure by having your course map produced professionally by Jesse Adams of North Point Geographic Solutions. Jesse can create a static map or an animated map with many options such as course elevation. If you have an idea for a map, we can produce it.
We can direct you to various vendors to help design and order shirts or any other type of merchandise for your event. We work with vendors with years of experience in art work and screen printing for major sporting events and organizations through the Midwest. Competitive prices, quality work, and timely deliveries are assured.
