SAN FRANCISCO – November 19, 2015 – Lapio, Inc. providing powerful race timing software complete with live, accurate results, delivered world-class timing accuracy at the Newport Beach triathlon using Lapio software, race result hardware and Human Tagging RFID HuTag.

The Newport Beach Triathlon, produced by Pacific Sports, offers 3 distances including the Sprint, Super Sprint and Youth triathlons.
