Timing Services

Since 1992, JMS Racing Services has timed more than 1,000 triathlons, duathlons, road races and other unique events around the nation. We provide our professional services to events or all sizes and of all types. JMS Racing Services is known for providing accurate and timely results. Our experience shows that nothing is as important to a competitor and their support than to see results as soon as possible. With our state-of-the-art timing systems, we are able to provide live times and stats while the event is going on and finish results virtually seconds after a person completes their event.

We believe in continuous improvement. Each year, we review current trends and race requirements so that we are able to provide industry leading timing to our customers. JMS Racing Services uses the best timing software and has two different chip timing systems to allow for a complete range of solutions.

If you are looking for the latest in totally disposable chip in the bib timing, we offer the Ultra UHF from RFID Race Timing Systems.  For high speed or unique application timing we use the MyLaps ProChip system. No matter what is needed, JMS Racing Services has the solutions and capabilities to handle the event.

Timing Equipment

RFID Ultra Timing System

More and more races want a disposable timing chip (tag) option. The Ultra UHF was purchased in 2011 from RFID Race Timing Systems to meet those requirements.

This system uses a totally disposable timing tag. The tags are placed on the back of the race number bib and require no effort on the part of the athlete.

Gone are the days of trying to figure out how to install the timing tag on a shoe or using ankle straps that have to be collected after the run. With chip in the bib disposable tag technology, there are no teams of volunteers collecting chips and the runner simply moves on to the post race recovery area after passing the finish line.bibchip1

The Ultra System is the perfect timing system for running races big and small. It can handle any size timing point from 16m start lines of a ‘major’ to a small 2m wide finish line for a local club race.

In 2015, JMS Racing Services began using the RFID Ultra for timing triathlons, duathlons and other swim related events.  This was a disposable timing strap solution that also utilized side patch antennas.

MyLaps Sports Timing ProChip System

Mostly for multisport events, JMS Racing Services uses the Active or the ProChip timing system from MyLaps Sports Timing. mylap-logo

The MyLaps system is unique, because it was developed with two goals in mind: 100% reliability and high accuracy. This dedication to reliability can only be found in MyLaps active transponder (chip) technology. prochip

MyLaps active transponders have internal long-life batteries that switch on and off as an athlete crosses over each start, split or finish line detection point. Active technology is perfect for higher speed or unique applications like multisport, cycling, inline skating, skateboard marathons and open water swim events.

Timing Software

RaceTec

JMS Racing Services began timing select events in 2011 with RaceTec. racetec

It was developed for some of the largest and most technologically advanced races in the world. Now most of our events are timed using this powerful, flexible and feature rich software that can handle nearly all types of competitive races.  RaceTec has allowed us to take our timing business to the next level.

Runscore

This software package has been around for more than 25 years and is flexible enough to handle any race timing criteria an organization might want.  JMS Racing Services continues to use Runscore for select events that require unique timing needs. runscore

PDF Results Reports

In addition to the live searchable results on our website for an event, we also post PDF files of the results.  For most events, there would be three reports.  One with finishers sorted by their overall positions.  One with finishers sorted by gender and one sorted by the age group or category.

Start-line Detection Point

This will allow for the inclusion of a chip time along with the gun time into the results. Timing mat would be set up at the start of the race to capture participant times as they start the race.

Split-time Detection Point

This will allow for the inclusion of a split time in the results. Timing mat would be set up along the route to capture participant times.
