Evansville, Indiana – February 25, 2016 – ChronoTrack, the industry leading provider of race timing and scoring solutions for endurance sports, provided timing and scoring technology for Conqur Endurance Group during a weekend of events that hosted more than 28,000 participants. The events utilized ChronoTrack equipment and RFID technology, which was critical for real-time tracking of athletes and scoring for race officials. Millions of spectators witnessed the marathon events in-person in Los Angeles, via live streaming on the Internet, and through the live broadcast on network television.
“Tracking participant race times accurately is always important. But it was even more critical during this year’s weekend of events, which included our annual Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon and the LA BIG5K,” said Murphy Reinschreiber, Vice President of Operations, Conqur Endurance Group. “Timing operations were led by ChronoTrack’s partner, EMMI/Track Shack Events out of Orlando, Florida. They collaborated with Run FAR Race Services, RacePlace Events, Race Central, and Real Time Race Results to ensure a top notch experience for all participants and spectators during race weekend.”
“ChronoTrack was extremely excited and honored to partner with Conqur Endurance Group for this historic weekend of running events in Los Angeles,” said Matt Downin, Director of Business Development for ChronoTrack. “As the industry leader in RFID timing technology, ChronoTrack’s products and partners made us proud over the weekend.”
