RFID Race Timing on the roof of Malaysia

RFID Race Timing Systems was used this year to time the 27th annual Mt Kinabalu Climbathon on the island of Sabah, Malaysia on October 18-19. The event was timed by RFID Race Timing Malaysia based in KL using Ultra and side antennas with the re-useable UltraTag. After 12km the runners reached Mt Kinabalu at 4095m above sea level and returned to the finish line for a total of 23km. The course is one of the toughest around with temperatures ranging from very hot and humid at the start/finish to near freezing at the summit. Almost 600 hardy trail runners competed this year and an in-depth race report with photos can be found here.

Turkey Trot Time

In what has become as big a tradition as eating turkey and pumpkin pie, runners came out in their tens of thousands to run in Turkey Trots all over North America as part of Thanksgiving Day on the 28th November. Over 50 races were timed with RFID Race Timing Systems Equipment (that we know of) on the same day with some events attracting up to 6000 runners. In terms of shear numbers of runners this is the biggest weekend in North America for timers due to the huge number of regional events on the Thanksgiving national holiday.
