Leading brand to provide timing and on-site registration services
CLAREMONT, Calif. – Spectrum Timing Services has recently announced a three-year agreement to provide timing, live results, runner tracking and on-site registration services for Conqur Endurance Group LLC, which most notably owns and manages the annual Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon and LA Big 5K. The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is southern California’s largest running event, annually attracting 25,000 runners and the LA Big 5K, held at Dodger Stadium, hosts an additional 5,000 runners on the Saturday morning prior.
Spectrum Timing, under the Motiv Sports family, will be using the latest in timing technology through their provider Ipico, part of the Active Endurance family of companies. This technology will provide for seamless information flow from the Active system and straight into the Active-Ipico timing technology.
“We look forward to providing timing and registration services in a seamless and efficient manner with our partners at Motiv and the Active Network,” said Mike Bone, president of Spectrum Timing Services.
Spectrum Timing has been working with Conqur for the previous two years timing the annual Santa Monica Classic and the Pasadena Half Marathon and 5K, held at the famous Rose Bowl each January. “We are thrilled to take our relationship with Conqur to this new level and include the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon, along with all of the other Conqur events in their endurance platform,” continues Bone. “There is only one Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon and it is recognized around the world as a premier event with their beautiful ‘Stadium to the Sea’ course.”
Services to be provided to the marathon will include a live feed for the international field, television services, runner tracking and updates for all participants, and social media integration. “We are pleased to be working with such a passionate group of people whose expertise and leading industry technology can create world class experiences for our participants by using the latest in timing technology for large participant events,” states Stacy Embretson, Senior Director of Operations at Conqur.
