On June 4th, Timing Sports already used MYLAPS technology at the Christchurch Marathon, one of New Zealand’s largest running events. More (and bigger) events will follow soon, including the fun run ‘City 2 Surf’ with over 80,000 (!) participants in Sydney.
Rob Docherty, CEO at Timing Sports:
‘Timing Sports regularly review the state of the timing hardware market to ensure we continue to offer our clients the best service possible. In reviewing the MYLAPS BibTag system, we were impressed with the performance, ease of setup and the upstream communications allowing centralized monitoring and control of all decoders. Above all else, however, we wanted to work with a partner who could offer effective, local support for Australian operation. MYLAPS ticked all the boxes and since making the decision to move to their platform, we have not regretted it for a second. Our first event with the new system immediately confirmed the wisdom of this decision and we look forward to many years of continued success together.’
