Race Timing Volunteers

wireless_timer.pngThe Race Timing Team is headed up by Tom Kendall, professional race timer at Bart Race Service. Race timing volunteers and staff will work with Tom and his team to record racers from start to finish and as they pass through each transition point of the pentathlon. Volunteers are expected to be able to meet at 5:30 am sharp at the Inferno race start location and those working on the mountain must be able to get themselves up to the hike-to-ski transition point in Tuckerman Ravine well before any racers are on that section of the course.

At least one volunteer is needed at each transition point. A volunteer must be able to collect and deliver any the timing devices once the last racer passes through a transition point, and then deliver that equipment to the main timing vehicle typically located at Pinkham Notch. The race timer volunteer on the mountain at the ski start & finish must ski down with all timing gear promptly at the end of the race to get results logged at the race timing motorhome which will be located near the finish line in the Pinkham Notch parking lot. Volunteers should have a basic understanding of racing and race timing in general. A detail oriented person with good attitude and aptitude for post-race beer drinking will fit in nicely. Ken says you must know how to read and have enough fingers on both hands to hold a timing device and push buttons in the correct sequence! Dexterity with pencil and paper won't hurt either.

Oh boy, time to sign me up for this gig!
