Elevated Racing | Event Timing



Some of you may have already heard by now, but my dad, brother and I recently bought an event timing company.   Elevated Racing | Event Timing has been around for a few years and we are excited to be taking it over and improving on the great service that was offered by the previous owner.

What does buying a chip timing company have to do with Utah Open Water?  Well, it means that we can offer timing and finish line services for open water swims in Utah.  In fact, we will be timing the Great Salt Lake Open Water Swim and the Deer Creek Open Water Marathon Swim this year.  We are also planning on setting up our system occasionally for casual races at some of our group swims this summer.

Our timing system can do some cool things like send you a text message with your finish time, post real-time results to the web, etc.  We will be updating our website soon with more details on all of the services that we offer.

In addition to timing open water races, we can also time running, cycling, and other types of races.  If you are a race director, or know someone who is, I would love to talk to you about the ways that our company can help with your race.  In addition, we would like to extend an invitation to running, triathlon and other sport clubs to let us come and time a group workout for you for free.

If you get a chance, please "like" our Facebook page and help us spread the word!

I've never used a chip in a swim race--where do they go? Attached to goggle straps? Inside your swim cap? In side your suit? :)

How does the water interact with chip detection? Interesting questions, perhaps you can address in an upcoming post.

We would use reusable chips that are worn around your ankle. This is how most triathlon races are timed.
