Additional Services and Equipment

Race Announcer Information

We provide an iPad or laptop connected to the timing mat so you can welcome your athletes at the finish line. We can also display ‘announcer data’ on this screen for your race announcers which will make the finish personal for all your athletes.

Starting Line

We can collect a chip start time for all your athletes as opposed to a ‘gun time’ which gives everyone has the same start time.

Inflatable Arch

Need an inflatable arch to spruce up your finish line? We got your covered! We have multiple finish arches which span 15 feet and 25 feet. The 15 foot wide arch can be customized with your own race banners/logos so you can have an arch which is branded for your race and your sponsors. The top banner area is 10 feet wide by 4 feet tall and side banners can be 30 inches wide by 60 inches tall. The inflatable arch creates an exciting atmosphere at the finish line. Athletes and spectators enjoy getting pictures with the finish arch.


Need a split time at the halfway point, a ‘cheat check’, or additional split times? We can provide all of that information. Providing a split time can decrease the concerns about people following the course correctly. We can set it up as a halfway point, a ‘cheat check’, or additional split times. Racers often enjoy being able to check their pace and see their progress.

We have a variety of equipment that can make your race complete and run smoothly. Vertical flags, tents, tables, cones, PA systems, bike racks, digital display clocks, water jugs, race numbers, swim caps, we have it! Just let us know what you need for your race and we will make it happen.
