Years of volunteering for the local Squamish mountain biking club of about 600 members gave us deep experience with the key problems race organizers face. Capturing times and names accurately, then preparing race results used to be tedious, time consuming and error prone. To solve this, we experimented with creating custom mobile apps, using lasers and wireless chip scanning. Spruce Race Timing is the culmination of our experience in the field both as race participants as well as technical problem solvers.
We began working together in 2004. Formally trained in industrial and graphic design we are also skilled in software development and electrical engineering. We develop all our own hardware and software in-house which has enabled us to realize our vision of making an all-inclusive, kick-ass, hike-in packable timing system.
