Jim and Dave have been avid runners for many decades and have run every distance from track sprints to marathons.
Both are active in the local running club in Derry, NH known as the Greater Derry Track Club (www.gdtc.org) and have held many leadership roles within the club over the years. Both have been and are currently the race directors for over 5 years of the club's two biggest races. Jim directs the 5K Turkey Trot which annually draws 500-700 participants, while Dave directs the Boston Prep 16 miler which draws over 700 participants from all over the country and Canada each year.
Both Dave and Jim have worked for a local New England timing company for over 5 years and each have done over 150 races during that time. Types of races include computerized chip races as well as non-chip races and include every distance from 1 mile to marathons. They also have timed close to 50 triathlons.
Dave and Jim are well versed in the Winning Time chip system and have been subcontracted over the years to work many large national running festivals (multiple road races over a weekend) such as Baltimore and Virginia Beach with attendance numbers typically in the 15,000 range. They also have experience with very large single races such as the Bloomsday race in Spokane, with over 40,000 finishers. Both have a lot of experience in triathlons of all sizes with the biggest being the nationally ranked Timberman Triathlon held each year in Gilford, NH with close to 2,500 finishers.
Both are well versed in the top-ranked recognized scoring software from RunScore and in all aspects of race management from start/finish line setup to water stops and have worked many years at the Boston and Philadelphia marathons.
With all of this experience the "timing" was right to strike out on their own which they did in 2007 when they formed New England Timing. Jim and Dave welcome the opportunity to serve you to help make your next event a success.
