The RFID Race Timing System has its origins back in 1996 when two pioneering West Australians developed a transponder timing system for their local triathlon



club. The device was so successful that another larger system was commissioned by Triathlon Western Australia in 1996.

The RFID Race Timing System was subsequently used to time just about every multi-sport race in Western Australia as well as numerous swimming races including the Multiplex Rottnest Channel Swim which boasted a field size of over 2000 swimmers.

By 2004, the RFID Race Timing System was being used to time major triathlons around the country including the Australian Triathlon Championships. Even a first of its kind antenna was developed for use in canoeing races and was used for the first time in 2005 to time the Avon Descent. In the same year, Accuchip Timing became our exclusive distributor for North and South America.

By 2007, the RFID Race Timing System had been used at both Australian Ironman races, ITU World Cup Triathlon races and the World Kayak Championships.

Early in 2008 the brand new High Density Digital (HDD) System was released which gave the RFID Race Timing System the capability to time the start and finish lines of any size running event. The HDD System passed with flying colours at the prestigious 2008 Melbourne Marathon (20,000 runners) and the 2009 New Orleans Mardi Gras Marathon (8000 runners).

In 2009 the HDD Systems continue to be the workhorse for many internationally timed events including both the ITU World Championships (Gold Coast) and Long Course Championships (Perth). The same system timed the prestigious Noosa Triathlon for the first time with a field of over 3000 triathletes. The HDD System was also used at the largest timed cycle event in the world – The Cape Argus Cycle Tour in Capetown South Africa.

Further details of the system can be found on the RFID Timing website and their YouTube video:
