About RaceClocker
What is RaceClocker?

RaceClocker is a do-it-yourself tool for manual timing of sports races. Our app offers an easy and fast alternative to chip timing or stopwatches. For coaches, timekeepers and race managers, RaceClocker is an excellent solution for high quality timing of your race.

From any laptop, tablet or smartphone with internet connection races can be timed from start to finish for up to 500 participants. Start, finish and split points along the course can all be at different locations. A race can be timed from as many devices as you need, also on multiple devices at the same timing point. RaceClocker provides and shares instant live results of your race.

For many race managers and coaches the use of transponder based timing is expensive or too much hassle and therefore often complex for small clubs or events. And for many sports on water or snow or at remote locations chip timing is even impossible. Timing races manually with stopwatches or with a timing app is common practice for small events but it's slow, error prone and requires lots of manual work.

We have simplified stopwatch timing with RaceClocker. What started as a small personal project to make a simple timing app for ourannual raceat our rowing club, got more serious when we started to make RaceClocker available as a self-service web application. Nowadays RaceClocker is a complete solution: from race creation to start list management, accurate timing, corrections from back-up systems and providing live, sortable results to share.

Continuous improvement

What's currently up and running here is a robust version of RaceClocker that has been tried and tested for over ten thousand real races and trials accross the globe. We're making it better and more useful every day based on our users' experience, input and feedback. We welcome users to share stories and make suggestions for improvements or requests for new features.

Who we are?

We at RaceClocker are competitive sports enthusiasts ourselves. We enjoy rowing, cycling, running and ice speed skating mixed with some mountain biking and hiking to stay fit and healthy. We’re also involved in organizing time trials and races ourselves where we use RaceClocker for race management and timing. Next to that we love great product design and high quality software development.

We hope you like using RaceClocker just as much as we enjoy building it.
