You send us your participant start list via email. This can be in any form; typically a spreadsheet is the most popular. Include any data you like, such as name, race number and category.
The file you send could be an extract from your race entry system, or just a list of race numbers. Of course you can send as little or as much as you like. So it could be as basic as this:
Or as sophisticated as this:
We mass encode all the timing chips for you, using our chip-encoding hardware and software.
We post the chips to you via recorded Delivery; posted back the day after we receive the details, or any date you choose.
The timing chips come in the form of sticketrs or wristbands. Stickers can attached to your race numbers or control cards. The stickers can go on the back or the front, it doesn’t matter. Obviously this step doesn’t apply if you choose wrist bands or key rings instead.
Your checkpoint marshals use the Beyond Marathon Race Timer Pro App to scan the participant chips as they pass through a checkpoint.
The marshal uses the App to send the splits via email back to race HQ, or onto the next checkpoint, or even publish splits straight to a website or social media.
You use the information while the race is on to post live updates to Facebook or Twitter, or to your own website. Beyond Marathon also offer an optional service via our website that will process all the splits files for you into one table, and publish the results online.
