One of our newest members of the RFID Race Timing network: Active Management Asia has run the 2012 River Kwai Adventure Race with great success.
Two person teams competed on a demanding course that included biking, jungle running, kayaking and river swimming with some surprise obstacles along the course.
The race started at the Bridge on the River Kwai, which was made famous by the POW’s under Japanese control in WW2, and featured in a movie of the same name. The terrain included a variety of scenery from the jungles to rice paddy fields with likely challenges from snakes, spiders, mosquitoes and even stray dogs.
The ULTRA timing system was easily up for the challenge. Using both 4 and 8 port systems the team at Active Management Asia were at ease capturing the split and final times. RFID Managing Director Andrew Peterson made the trip to Thailand to help out with staff training and fine tuning for the race. For more photos of this event click here.
