MultiSports Races: not your regular events
Triathlons, duathlons and other multisport events are tough in every aspect. For event organizers as well as timekeepers, it is hard to make everything work. Many of these events offer different classes and distances, but coping with transition areas makes them stand out from your normal event. And, from an athlete´s perspective: it takes a lot of training to be able to compete in one. Triathletes are not your average participants: they know what they want, and flawless timing is one of their main requirements.
A solution for every multisport event
The ideal solution for multisport events depends on several factors. For events in which professional athletes participate (such as IRONMAN triathlons), the ProChip system is recommended. This system is highly accurate and can handle high speeds.
For events with many participants, the BibTag system in combination with the MultiSports Tag is well suited. This system can easily handle thousands of competitors and minimizes handling and logistics, as the tags are disposable. Moreover, many add-ons are available in combination with the BibTag system. For instance, a personalized registration module can be created. Another great feature is the SocialShares application: an easy to use application which provides live timing updates to athletes and spectators through Facebook, Twitter, email and text messages.
