EasyMat used at one of world's largest marathons

The Hong Kong Marathon was one of the first running events using the new EasyMat. This new mat ensures super-fast setup times. The cabling is integrated in the mat itself, so there’s hardly any manual handling needed.

Light, quick and easy

The setup for the timing went faster than expected. The EasyMat is very convenient, it’s very light and quick to plugin and have it working. This saved us a lot of time compared to the other mats. Very good!
