RockRacingNew This Year! Disposable RFID Chip Timing from Rock Race Timing!

 

The advantages of the Disposable RFID Chip Timing is that it allows for fool-proof timing and more accurate race results. It also allows for a more free flowing finish line and helps to eliminate post-race bottlenecks. It also allows us to free up volunteers to help in other key areas since less volunteers are needed at the finish line.

We are excited to partner with Rock Race Timing and look forward to continue to provide more advancements and technology going forward to our race participants.
