3. Race Timing
Would you like to provide automatic timing for your athletic events? Our timing services fit the bill if you already have your event planned and implemented but all you need is the timing component. We use the MyLaps ProChip and MyLaps BigTag system – depending on the situation.
The MyLaps Pro Chip system is an electronic device attached to a neoprene strap. The system has be used in the Tour de France, 2004 Olympic marathon, triathlon and been certified for usage in all USATF-Sanctioned events. With this certification, the AMB ProChip System can now officially record USATF event records. We use this system to time all chip timed events.
The MyLaps Big Tag system is an electronic device attached to bib number. The advantage of this system is the speed with which one can get athletes registered for the race and there are no collection requirements after the event. We use this system to time chip timed running events.
We specialize in timing triathlons, duathlons, inline, running and cycling events and have earned a reputation of being strong solution providers who get the job done – correctly the first time. We’d love to help make your event the best it can be, fill out the form and we’ll contact you.

What’s NOT having a Health Promotion Program costing your business?
Consider the health risk factors that are increasing chronic conditions for adults –
• 59% of adults are overweight or obese
• More than 60 percent of American adults do not exercise regularly
• Greater than 75% of adults do not consume the minimum recommendations for fruits and vegetables
• Heart disease is the most common cause of death and the leading cause of death in smokers
• 26% of personnel reported they were often or very often burned out or stressed by their work
Health care costs are increasing – Health Care costs are at a record high of $1.7 trillion with no signs of holding steady let alone decreasing. The average cost of annual health care spending is over $5,000 per person and with dependents almost $10,000.
Recent data shows that health care related expenses now cost North Carolina companies thousands of dollars per employee, a year.
Most Illnesses can be Avoided – Despite the fact that it sounds unbelievable, specialists indicate that avoidable illness makes up 60% – 70% of the entire burden of illness in the U.S.
In North Carolina, it’s estimated that more than 53 percent of all deaths are preventable, and that 2/3 of all avoidable deaths are as a result of tobacco use, lack of exercise, and poor nutrition.
Stress Levels are Increasing – as organization resources become less and corporations adopt leaner work practices, the effects of absenteeism and productivity lost have a greater impact.
In a recent national poll, 78 percent of American Citizens described their jobs as stressful, and the majority felt that stress levels have become worse over the last 10 years. Further, high levels of organizational stress can adversely affect a business by increasing injuries, absenteeism, and medical costs while reducing productivity.
Simple solutions such as stress management education, flexible work schedules, quality social interaction, and increased participation in business decision-making can improve stress levels in the workplace.
We can help you (free of charge) to communicate the health value of living an active lifestyle and endurance sports participation.
