Below are some of the testimonials Sport Systems have received about their race management and timing services.
John Power, Race Director – The Synthetix 10k
I have used sports systems for two years now as our systems and logistics partner for our 10k race. I have been very happy with the service they provide . From advice on set up to processing results on the day the service is seamless and very professional. Emma and the team are stars and I am more than happy to recommend them.
Moray Carey, Race Director – Reigate Priory 10K
Thanks very much, as ever, for your selfless co-operation, input etc. which certainly makes my job of Race Director easier, knowing that key aspects of the race infrastructure are delivered in a professional, efficient and reliable manner.
Cliff Hilton, Race Director – Halloween 5K
Please book us in for next year. A mid-week run! … the pumpkins were supplied and carved by the various restaurant staff in the four restaurants we have on our campus here at Oracle Corp. There is always a competition to see who can come up with the most original yet scary carving!!! … the pumpkins spend the day adorning each restaurant and are then gathered in for full display at the race! It was a fab event and got rave reviews from the runners. Thanks Sport Systems for being part of it and helping make the H5NR the success it was!
Andy Bone, Race Director – Brighton Phoenix 10k
I have emailed Emma and Mark but I’d just like to let you know that they have made Phoenix’s ‘jump’ to chip timing a real pleasure. Mark and Emma have been brilliant; they have always been available when we have had a question or query.
Mark and John were completely on it last night (calm and collected) and they made any nerves I had disappear immediately.
I would recommend Sport Systems to any club looking for a chip timing company without hesitation and I look forward very much to using you again next year, this time with a bigger field.
Matt Lambert, Chairman of the Passing It On charity and HEROES RUN co-founder
“For the first 6 years of our event we managed our own race entry system. HEROES RUN 7 was the first year we have used Sport Systems to deal with entry and it has been so beneficial to us. Not only has it freed up our time to focus on promoting the event but we have significantly increased our donations by incorporating a donate option into the race entry system. Their support on the day of the event also made managing our runners quick and efficient. I would thoroughly recommend Sport Systems to any charity looking to put on a mass participation running event.”
Kevin Napier, Race Director – Chippenham Half Marathon.
We have used Sport Systems’ entry management and chip timing services for many years and cannot praise them highly enough. Their professionalism, attention to detail and customer focus is second to none and the advice and help they gave us planning the layout of our finish area was invaluable. We will certainly continue to use Sport Systems in the future and would not hesitate to recommend them to any race organiser who wants hassle-free entry management and a fast and efficient chip timing and results service.
Grace Hall, National Junior Athletics League
“The NJAL have been using Don Anderson operating Photo Finish for the Leagues National Final for the last four years. The switch to Sport Systems made no difference to the standard of service that we have received, and I can say that we have already booked the Photo Finish for our 2009 Finals. The equipment is reliable and accurate, and the operators give more than 100% to ensure the event receives a first class set of results. I would recommend Sport Systems equipment and operators to anyone wanting any of the services that they supply.”
Rob Wiggins, Chichester Runners & AC, St Wilfrids Hospice 10K
“I was very impressed with the seamless way in which you integrated your online entry system into my web site, so once I put the link in you could not see the “join”. Also, I think it is important to add that the support and help that you give is valuable, especially to new users who may be a little unsure of how it all works. RaceMaster itself is also very easy, intuitive and quick to use making input of entries and results as efficient as it can be. The range of race options is also very impressive which I have found useful for some of my more complex events like the Corporate Challenge.”
Eric Hardwick MBE, Race Director. Hastings Half Marathon.
Voted the best Half Marathon in the U.K.(RW)
“Sport Systems Electronic Chip, incorporated in the Race Number, was like a ‘Dream come True’ to me as a Race Organiser. Far better than separate chips in every way, for both races, and runners. It is brilliant, and I commend it to all Race Organisers.”
Maire Williams, New Eltham Joggers
Our race took place today and all went well – I think RaceMaster is FAB – our 5 mile race started at 10.45 and, as I printed out the first 150 finishers, I noticed that my watch said 11.45. Pretty good to have the results on view in just an hour.
Colin Penn, Race Director, The Cabbage Patch 10
As well as chip timing our event, Sport Systems manage all our entries for us through an online entries website which they custom-built to complement our own website and all the postal entries. Each week, I get an up-to-date Audit Trail Report telling me how many entries we have and noting all the financial side including all the cheques that have been banked for us. Now I can concentrate more on the organisational aspects of the event without worrying about the administration which I know is being well looked after. I have no hesitation in recommending Sport Systems Limited to any Race Director.”
