NRS uses Race Result Hardware exclusively. We have found it to be the most reliable and accurate timing system on the market today.
- Race Result BibTag System - This is the system used for the majority of events we time. It is an RFID system. Each timing point is fully functional and self contained. The timing devices, or “Tags,” are all disposable, therefore eliminating the need for collection volunteers at the finish line, and, the threat of replacement fee if not returned.
- Race Result ActiveChip System - This system is used for races that have special circumstances; i.e. high speed finishes, snow skiing events etc. It uses an active transponder that must be returned at the end of the race.
- FinishLynx Photo Finish System - NRS has access to FinishLynx equipment for events that require “FAT” or Photo Finish at the finish line. Using Milliseconds Pro software and the Lynx software, we can quickly identify close finishes, down to 1/1000th of a second, review and verify the correct finish order.
NRS uses Milliseconds Pro. This custom developed timing and scoring software can be specifically programmed to meet any special needs your race might have. “Out of the Box” timing and scoring software does not offer this flexibility. Nor do they have the support Milliseconds Pro provides to be able solve issues during a race, should they arise.
Outside of the timing and scoring services we provide, we have many partners in the industry that we can refer to. Many of these services are local to the Spokane WA area, but we can give you ideas for local services in your own areas too! Services include:
