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

Ready Set Go Race Timing can now offer RFID chip timing solutions for larger events.

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.

We've recently invested in RFID chip timing technology so can now offer a wider range of timing options to suit different events and different budgets.


We've found most community race events don’t need chip timing, and our basic manual system is well set up to do just about everything an RFID system can do at a fraction of the cost.  However, if you do have a larger or more complex race we can now offer chip timing as an option and we are keen to discuss your timing requirements to ensure we have the best system at the best price to make your event a success.

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

  • Manual and RFID chip timing options and we can potentially mix the two to create remote timing checkpoints

  • 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.

We recently timed the Kaikoura Whale Run event using our new RFID timing system

In December we timed the Tekapo10 MTB Race at Lake Tekapo.
