EVENTS & RACE TIMING

We are a South Wales based events management and race timing company who specialise in timing and delivering high quality events to the running, cycling, duathlon and triathlon communities all over the United Kingdom. As runners, cyclists and triathletes ourselves, we try to think about every aspect of an event; from ensuring that participants have the correct information prior to entering, to providing swift results after they finish, we like to cover every angle. 

EVENTS

We organise a range of events across the running, cycling and multi-sport disciplines.

We strive to provide high quality and value for money as demanded by the sporting community. We always strive to offer races that appeal to both the experienced competitor and the novice competitor who could be progressing on from entry-level events such as parkrun 5K’s. Our organising experience combined with our race experience ensures that we achieve our aims to become a top quality provider of sporting events in South Wales, covering running, cycling, cycling time trialling, aquathlon, duathlon and triathlon events.

Sharing your location using your phone

When cycling one of our events, it's a good idea to carry your mobile phone with you. This isn't just so you can gather stats on Strava but so you can contact us in the event of a mechanical or medical emergency. In these situations, you must always call the phone numbers provided in the event information document that we send you before the event. You will also find these numbers on the bike number that you get given at the event.

Further to this, you can also use your phone to send us your exact location. This will help us locate you much faster.
