DIY Timing Kit

Looking for a low cost solution for timing? You can rent a DIY Timing Kit from us and time your own event with just a few extra volunteers.

Kit Arrival

Our simple timing solution for race directors is full of personality! We take great care to ensure that you get everything you need to time a small 5K or 10K for your club, school, or charity.

We will ship out the kit the week of you event. Take the time to unpack the kit. Take note of everything in the kit and familiarize yourself with the equipment.  Preparation is the key to a successful event!

Assemble the Finish Chute

The DIY timing kit comes with rope and PVC stanchions to create a finish chute. Assemble the stanchions and string the rope through them. You will want to set it up to funnel the runners down to a single file line.

Charge up and power on the timing equipment

Make sure to power on all the equipment prior to the event to make sure everything is working properly. Sometimes items are damaged in shipping.

Instructions and Forms

Be sure to read through the instructions and familiarize yourself with the results forms. Remember, preparation is the key to a successful event!

What You Get

Bib and Pins

The DIY Kit include Tyvek Race bibs with tear tags and safety pins. 



A small battery powered LED clock is included. It can be used for the runners to check their time as they cross the finish line.

Time Machine Stopwatch

The Time Machine is the brains of the operation. This is how you will capture finish times for the participants.



We will include a full set of instructions for setup and timing of you event. 

Stantions and Stringer

One of the keys to pull tag timing is to funnel the participants down to a single file line in the order that they finished. The kit include some simple stantions and rope to make a finish chute for just that purpose.

Race Results Forms

Along with the results, there will be some forms for you to enter participant’s times into and generate overall results.
