Race Support and Timing Services

Why pay a fortune for results when we can deliver live,
personalised results from £1 per entrant!

Timing Solutions

Here at Cannonball Events, we own a wide range of equipment, including state of the art chip timing system which can be used to provide Live results for your races. We have experience in timing and planning races in races in various formats, in Running, Cycling, Open Water Swimming and Triathlon. Regardless of the distance or the complexity of the race, we can provide you with a timing solution.

We have timed distances from 5k to 100 miles and with our detection rates at 99.5% accuracy, we always deliver fast, highly user-friendly results.

Bespoke Results Formats

As all our employees are passionate competitors we understand exactly what the customer and client need.

We give splits on lapped coursesindividual times for relays and provide live online results with both net and gun times. For example, imagine how useful lap splits can be to both athletes and coaches.



Net/Gun Times


We feel that our technology and knowledge can breathe life into the old races or add value to an already existing timed event. The Results come in a highly sortable, easy to use and personalised format, not one long boring list that makes it difficult for the runner to see what they have achieved.

Take a look at one of our race results links here to give you a working example:
