TIMING

First and foremost, we’re timers. From 30,000 riders to 100 cross country runners, we’ve seen every distance and configuration of race. No matter the challenge, we’ve risen to meet it and have always produced accurate results – available live at the finish line! So, whether you’re a cyclist on the East Coast, an Ultra Runner on the West Coast, or a high school sprinter here at home, we have the tools, experience, and grit to time your event.

REGISTRATION

Good timing starts with good data, and for every race we time we utilize Chronotrack registration. We can build a custom form for your race, handling teams, coupon codes, unique sponsor registration pages, and even referral tracking. Available online and on-site, we can keep registration open past the start of a race. Utilizing dynamic bib assignment, our registration systems never have to rely on paper, and can accommodate multiple packet pick up locations simultaneously.

ABOUT US

Big River Race Management was founded in 2007 a year after its sister company Big River Running Company entered the St. Louis running market. After receiving request after request to help time and organize local road races, Big River owner Matt Helbig decided it was time to bring a more professional approach to event management. Big River started out small, helping local charities and race organizations time and manage about 20 events in its first year. In 2009, local race timing pioneer Tom Eckelman partnered with Big River, bringing over 30 years of race management experience to the table.

Since then, Big River Race Management has added four full-time employees and a number of hands contracted out to help on the weekends, timing over 160 events and 140,000 participants in 2016, and providing race management services to some of the largest events in the Saint Louis area. We know what it takes to put on a race. We have our own Big River Signature Events that we not only provide timing for, but also provide management, race organization, race planning, plus all the fundamental pieces to see a successful event start to finish.

Staying on the cutting edge of technology, BRRM has adopted the ChronoTrack Live RaceCasting services which feature online registration, onsite registration, dynamic race check-in, mobile results, real-time online results, mobile and social media athlete updates, onsite results, athlete photography and video and has led to timing contracts with such events as the USA Cross Country Championships, GO! St. Louis, Men’s Health Urbanathlon, ZOOMA Women’s Race Series, Kirkwood/Webster Turkey Day Run, Girls on the Run St. Louis, Bike MS and many more. Big River Race Management is proud to call themselves St. Louis’ leader in race timing and event management and the Midwest’s premier race timing and event management company.
