Chip Races

The basis for chip technology is the radio-frequency-identification system (RFID) from Texas Instruments, which is also used for security-locks in cars and admission control in buildings. Chip races use this microchip technology to accurately gather times from the finish, or anywhere on the course where timing mats & boxes can be set up. The major advantage of chip timing is its extreme accuracy - relying on technology instead of personnel for the recording of times.


The development of the ChampionChip technology started in 1993, initiated by the organization of the Seven Hill Run in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. It was officially introduced at the Berlin Marathon in September 1994. Presently the ChampionChip technology is used in the big city marathons, Ironman triathlons plus thousands of other events around the world, with proven superior performance.
