“You spoke, we listened. Regardless of what technology platform a timer uses, there are business and market challenges that must be faced and overcome. We’ll address those head on at our 2020 event with new focused sessions for the timing community,” said Christine Bowen, vice president of programming, partnerships and operations for Running USA.

Running USA is the undisputed leader in unbiased content and educational resources for the running industry. The timing programming will be presented by peers in the industry familiar with leading techniques and best practices, and will facilitate better relationships between everyone involved in event production.

Marc Roy, CEO of Sportstats, is a veteran timer and longtime attendee of the industry conference.

As we have grown from 800 races to 1300 races in the last five years, we have really benefited from networking at key industry events like Running USA. Adding content that speaks directly to timers will only make this conference more valuable,” said Roy, who will be one of the presenters.
