BibTag technology – the standard in sports timing

MYLAPS, founded in 1982, is the inventor of automatic sports timing, and develops technology that is used all over the world, from the Olympics, major marathons, and NASCAR to countless local races. To offer best-in-class timing services, TAGID decided to use MYLAPS BibTag technology. This is the standard timing system for mass running events with affordable chips and the highest read-rates in the industry. It was used in October at the Chicago Marathon when Kelvin Kiptum broke the world record. The MYLAPS ThinTag is 75% thinner than regular tags resulting in less waste and shipment space, which has a positive impact on carbon emissions.
