At Ready Set Go Race Timing our aim is to offer a comprehensive and professional race/event timing at an affordable price.

We started Ready Set Go Race Timing specifically to provide smaller community fundraising event organisers with a quality timing solution while ensuring they are able to maximise their event’s potential revenue.  We believe your fundraising efforts should result in money to put back into your community - not to pay for an expensive - and sometimes over-the-top - timing service.

So if you’re looking to create a quality race/event and need a comprehensive timing solution at a realistic price - talk to us first!  We'll take the hassle of race timing away from your team of volunteers - no more having to organise and train volunteers each year to operate your old-school timing system.

While our timing system doesn’t use RFID tech (yet), we've found most community race events don’t need it, and our system is well set up to do just about everything an RFID system can do at a fraction of the cost.  Our system is used to time hundreds of events all around the world - it’s proven and well supported.

Ready Set Go Race Timing is based in North Canterbury and we're keen to support local events to ensure they maximise their fundraising potential.

We're also happy to look at timing your event if you are outside the North Canterbury region.

We're all about supporting community sport and recreation across rural NZ.


Ready Set Go Race Timing can cater for just about any type or length of race event...

  • Wide variety of event types: cycling, mountain biking, running, swimming, kayaking, duathlons, triathlons, adventure races, and more

  • Different start types: individual, mass, interval (wave), pursuit start

  • Multiple distances & categories within the same event

  • Individual, relay or team races : Lap times, split times

  • Live results posted online and quick production of results at race end

  • Race registration service (if required)

  • Race promotion advice

  • We can even provide a small PA system

We work closely with race organisers to ensure they get the best timing solution for their particular event - before, during and afterwards.  

We're fully self contained so will come to your event requiring nothing from you other than your preliminary start list.
