About Us


Tortoise & Hare Race Timing delivers race timing solutions and event management in the Seattle, Olympia and Tacoma area using the latest RFID chip timing technology.  We leverage a variety of antenna types that allow us to time your event with overhead, side mount or mat-based antennas. We exclusively use disposable “chips” that attach to the runners/cyclist bib.  Our overhead antennas do away with messy timing mats.  Volunteers love the fact that they don’t have to remove chips after the race. 

We time races and provide race results for events in Washington including Seattle, Olympia, Bellevue, Woodinville, Bellingham, Snohomish County and King County.  While some timing companies use an a la carte approach to their offering, we include all of our services in a single price with no hidden charges.   At Tortoise & Hare Race Timing Company, we time all sorts of events including running events 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathons, marathons, and cycling time trials and mountain bike races.

Anchor races in Washington include:

Woodinville Turkey Trot – Woodinville
