Sportstats, the timing company for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series, is proud to announce its commitment to using race|result bib numbers and timing technology at all US Rock ‘n’ Roll events over the next three years.
Marc Roy, founder and CEO of Sportstats, says: “race|result offers the easiest and most streamlined process for custom bibs with tags. We use personalized bibs with runners’ names at all Rock ‘n’ Roll races, so fast turn-around is crucial. The automated process race|result uses to encode and place tags on bibs saves us a lot of time and reduces stress leading up to the race. On race day, the quick set up of the foldable mats with race|result systems is another big timer saver for us.”
This past weekend, over 21,000 registered runners competed in Tempe Arizona.

Arizona was the first event in the 2018 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon series. The event included distances for everyone: marathon, half marathon, 10k, 5k as well as a 1 mile and a KiDS ROCK event. The Sportstats timing team used 23 race|result systems on course and streamed live results data through rtrt.me.
CEO of race|result, Soenke Petersen says, “We’re very excited to partner with Sportstats and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. Our goal is to offer the right timing products and services that make the life of timekeepers easier and improve the runners’ race experience.”
