Empowering race directors.
Race management, planning and organization are the keys to operating
a successful event. Second Wind Timing provides initial consultation
to assist in establishing a thorough race planning checklist.
We also provide a detailed Race Director’s Manual to all of our customers.
Need online registration? We can help you with that. We partner with Race Menu to set up a secure customized online registration site specific to your event.
Using the cutting edge Race Result® timing system, we are able to provide a low cost chip timing solution for your event. Regardless of the size of your event we can accommodate your needs.
All of our timed events include your race bibs. If you want a custom bib we can do that too. It is a great way to elevate your race, highlight your sponsors, and give runners a unique memento to take home after the event.
Streaming Live Results Kiosk
Runners don’t want to wait for the event timers to print new copies of results. Weather permitting, Second Wind will provide streaming results of finishers on a 46″ display screen at the race.
Runners expect to see results posted online after the event. We will have an online version of the overall results and age groups posted to the website before we leave your event. You can direct runners to our site, or host the results on your page.
Race consulting will include insight from our many years of expertise. We'll focus on how to be a successful race director, covering the steps involved from the idea of hosting a race to the race start. Second Wind will also provide connection to our various partners who handle everything from shirts, awards, running store and club promotion, race marketing and advertising sites..
Event Photography & Videography
Give your top sponsor an option to have their logo appear on pictures taken during your event or a highlight reel. We will provide a photographer and/or videographer to capture your event, including a photo of all finishers as they cross the line. We will upload hi-res images of your race that your runners can download and print with your logo, or your top sponsor’s logo.
T-Shirts & Swag
We partner with a local t-shirt company to provide you with custom, high-quality t-shirts for your event. You provide the art work, and we will create your shirts. If you need custom design work, we can help there, too. If you need other event swag, just ask us!
USATF course certification is the process of getting your race route accurately measured. A USATF certified course will let runners know that you have an exact course. This will give your run a more official look and will draw more serious runners to your event. Let us assist you in getting your course certified.
We provide a dual-sided LED Timing Clock at finish line for runner and viewer reference.
Our Race Result® equipment leads the industry with an accuracy rating of 99.99%. Even with an accuracy rate so high we include back-ups to the system. Your race will include a Hi-Def digital camera that works with our system. We can find any finisher with the click of a button to verify results if necessary. We also utilize a manual back-up with a time machine. We have never needed to use them for results, but we continue to utilize them anyway.
Need lawn signs to advertise your race? How about custom banners? We can help you with that. We work closely with local partners to fulfill this need for you.
On-Site Sound System
We'll provide an outstanding dual-speaker system, iPod or Mp3 hookup, and microphone, as well as music if desired. This creates a fantastic ambience for runners and allows you to make important announcements.
We will arrange for your awards, whether they are gift cards, trophies, or medals. Tell us how you want to arrange your awards, and we will give you options. We can arrange stock awards, or customize them for your race.
