About Us

Finishline Timing is based in Edinburgh and provides electronic chip timing services to races across Scotland and the UK.

We offer the latest in chip timing technology and a wide range of services to suit the needs of your event, all for a very competitive price.

Our diverse timing portfolio includes large running races, club-run triathlons, mountain bike events, sportives, multi-sport adventure races, open water swims, and more.

Whether your are considering using chip timing for the first time, or you already organize large successful races, Finishline Timing would like to be part of your event.

Our professional and friendly staff, experienced both as athletes and as race organizers, will help make your event one that competitors will want to return to year after year.

About the System

The timing system consists of a transponder chip fitted to a velcro ankle strap, a timing mat which picks up the transmitted code from the chip and a control box which processes

the chip codes and timing information. Attached to the control box is a laptop computer running Racetec live timing software. This allows us to show live results on a flat screen

TV during the race and also allows competitors and spectators to interrogate results and splits during the race by typing in their race number on a numeric key pad.
