Adventure running and CloudTimer are a perfect match. Start all competitors individually or in groups, take split times on as many locations as you want and judge the obstacles. The only thing you need are a couple of volunteers using their smartphone.
The results are online just seconds after crossing the finish line. No need for calculations and no extra steps needed to publish the results on the web site.
The use of timing chips can be useful when numbers rise above 500, but for smaller and midsize races, or even a club training, choose CloudTimer. It is a very affordable solution.
Adventure Running and CloudTimer
In adventure running you could just use the start, split and finish functionality of CloudTimer. But why not use our judging option as well? It is easy to have a judge with a mobile smartphone at each of the obstacles, and mark all athletes that fail to pass the test. The race results are always up-to date, so they are available the moment the athletes pass the finish line.
Why use would you use timing chips? They cause a great logistic hassle and can be lost during the race. Use CloudTimer instead!
