Race Timing

Whether competing in a serious marathon or a fun-run in a park, every participant wants to know their true time. raceahead has been providing chip timing to events for the last 10 years. We’ve supported some of the UK’s largest events including the London Triathlon, Ironman Series and Vitality Run Series. We appreciate the complexities of these events and understand the importance of accuracy and reliability as well as flexibility in timing technology. We fully understand that we only get one chance to get this right.

Accurate ResultsLive trackingSocial media sharing

We use market leading chip technology, from which we are able to record participant times reliably and accurately. Once data is securely collected, our focus is the distribution of the relevant data to all parties as efficiently and informatively as possible.

Spectators and participants alike can search and follow friends, family members or themselves around the course or re-live their run via our live tracking software. Watch them moving round the course, check their progress and find out when they are likely to get to the finish line.

Expand the reach of your event across social networks, with real time social media posts. Further engage with the participants, spectators and fans with live and customisable updates through Facebook, Twitter, Email and/or text messages.


Events involve packing and dispatching race packs and goody bags to hundreds or thousands of competitors. Organisers who attempt to do this themselves, soon find it to be challenging and time-consuming, not least through the problems of recruiting and paying experienced staff and finding a suitable location. Having access to the staff, premises and logistics experience provided by our Fulfilment Service your worries would be taken away..
