Simple Race Timing came into reality for us after several years of involvement with a couple of local sports clubs.
Competitive racing wasn’t for us, so we took on the roles of race registration and timing for the Hamilton MTB Club dealing with around 100 competitors per race every week of summer over several seasons. We quickly developed a reputation for running a simple, easy and efficient system combining racer registration, timing and results, and found ourselves being approached to help with other events including Cyclocross and Triathlon.
As a husband and wife team, we both have day jobs so our service is limited to weekday evenings and weekends.
We do this for our personal enjoyment, and not to make a living. It also helps fund our cycling addiction! We love the social aspect of what we do, and take great pride in being an integral part of an event that brings enjoyment and fun to so many. Our time is often volunteered to assist with marshalling and supporting when not busy timing.
It’s our intention to fill a gap in the race timing market, focussing on smaller club events, community and fundraising races. As we invest in technology we will be able to manage larger numbers, but we certainly don’t have any intention to take on the other providers – they do a fantastic job of servicing bigger events.
