We are delighted to serve our timing partners and these major events across the world with premium timing technology. Both Boston and Chicago Marathon used BibTag technology.

Timing was provided by The Last Mile Racing, while Mika Timing took care of the Scoring part of the events.

This year’s Boston Marathon used 41 BibTag decoders and 218 rubber mats across the city.  90,000 runners have participated in person or virtually, representing 87 countries and all 50 U.S. states during the 125th edition of the Boston Marathon.
