GSE (Gopher State Events) is a Minnesota race management and race timing service specializing in road race timing, nordic ski timing, snow shoe timing, mountain bike timing, duathlon timing, race walk timing and cross-country running. We use conventional race timing & RFID timing or chip timing.
We are experts at all things race management. Whether it be course measurement, course setting, pre-race publicity, Search Engine Optimization, Volunteer Organization, or other consulting services, we can help. We can also line you up with the best in online participant pre-registration and assist with your social networking.
Our goal is for every race we manage this year to be a part of a series of races. The series will be based on things like geographic location, race types, who is sponsoring the event, etc. There is nothing for the event director or the participant to do. Just show up and run, walk, swim, bike, ski, snow shoe, or whatever the race calls for. We'll handle the data. Series information can be found here: GSE Series Information.
We rely more on the feedback we get from our customers more than anything else when it comes to expanding our race calendar and refining our service offerings. See what some of them have said here.
RFID (chip) Timing: Ultra - The ultimate UHF rifd timing/chip timing system. We chose the Ultra system because it is one of the leading technologies in RFID timing and chip timing and it allows us the option of being able to source UHF tags from wherever we please. This allows us to keep our prices near the low end of rfid timing or chip timing providers without compromising quality.
Conventional Timing: We use the Summit System "No Worries" Timing System out of Salt Lake City, UT. This system is designed to minimize human error and provide quick, accurate results in a volunteer-staffed conventional race timing environmnent. As a result, we can provide conventional race timing services at a fraction of the cost of rfid race timing or chip race timing systems.
