Below are some of the testimonials Sport Systems have received about their race management and timing services:
Tim Fowler, Race Director – Hampshire Hoppit Trail Marathon and Half Marathon
I want to pass on my grateful thanks to the team at Sport Systems for being part of another successful Hampshire Hoppit. The praise for the event that has been flooding onto our Facebook page is very humbling.
I’d particular like to mention Elston for being unfailingly helpful and available to answer all my queries and to make changes as needed before the event, and also Hazel for her calm control during the stresses and strains that are ever present on race day.
We would – of course – want to contract with Sport Systems for Hoppit2019, to provide the online entry system and on-the-day activities and results service. Why would we want to consider changing an excellent supplier? I get frequent emails from companies that want to take on the process from you, but I’m not interested.

James Ridger, Race Director – Paddock Wood Half Marathon
Thanks for yesterday and over the last few months, as always you did a great job for us. Your team on the day were excellent as usual.

Caitlin Limmer, Race Director – The Cabbage Patch 10
I can only praise Sport Systems for all they have done for me. For 7 years I have used them. They have taught me everything I need to know and learn about entry systems. Nothing is ever too much trouble. They are quick, hard working and efficient. I am constantly asked to use other entry systems and I will not change – Sport Systems has been used for many years for Cabbage Patch 10 (which has been running since 1982) and The Turks Head 10k for 7 years. Every single member of the Sport Systems staff without exception has been so good to me and both these races that I am Race Director of. I would highly recommend them if you want a personal and great service.

Richard Xerri, Perseverance Events
I have used SS for several years with events from 250 to 5000 applicants. Unlike many registration platforms who are only interested in the online ££ SS manage many areas of operational delivery. The team work hard with quite often tight deadlines and the online workflow and data management under one umbrella creates a seamless delivery. With many years in the industry and trying several platforms I can confidently say these guys and girls know their industry inside out. A small independent excellent business.

Naomi Kitchener, Race Organiser – The Vale Gallop
I have used Sport Systems for chip timing of my race – The Vale Gallop – for 5 years now, after a disappointing experience with a different timing company. The service I have received from the team at Sport Systems on race day has always been excellent. They are professional, calm and efficient, with results of category winners available within 10 minutes of them crossing the line, which makes for a rapid prize giving and allowing athletes to get home. Printed race results are available instantly as required and posted online as soon as the last runner crosses the line. In addition the team have provided me with marketing and race organisation advice which has been really helpful. In all, the service Sport Systems have provided me with has made my job as Race Organiser a lot easier and more stress free, knowing that the critical task of timing and results production is in safe hands. Highly recommend!

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 Mark but I’d just like to let you know that they have made Phoenix’s ‘jump’ to chip timing a real pleasure. They have been brilliant; always been available when we have had a question or query.
Mark and the team 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.
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.
