Welcome to Action Timing Ltd, Irelands’ newest Sports Chip Race Timing Company. We can chip time any sports event, big or small from Fun Run races with a couple of hundred runners to more competitive races like Marathons races to multi-sport races like Duathlons, Triathlons and Adventure races.
In addition to chip race timing solutions, Action Timing also provide a large number of Event Services including Race Clock Hire (Finish line Clock), Start and Finish Gantries, Folding/Portable Tables, Registration tents, Crowd Control Barriers, Traffic Cones, Event Signage and Transition Bike Racks.
We use the ChronoTrack UHF/RFID Transponder Tag timing system for all our race timing.
Tag time (Chip time) is recorded by an electronic tag that is attached to a runner’s ankle or bib, depending on the race type. The tag records the time at which you cross the start line, the finish line and/or several split times within the race that the timing is being applied to.
Race tag time is often shorter than race gun time because tag time begins when a runner crosses the start line while gun time starts when the gun is fired at the start of the race; many runners don’t cross the start line until several minutes after their official gun time of the race has begun.
This is the most accurate form of marathon timing available because it measures the exact time between a runner crossing the start line and the finish line. Tag time also records several important splits, providing an accurate record of a runner’s pace.
We specialise in working closely with the Event Organiser to ensure a professionally run and enjoyable day for everyone taking part.
