Bibless timing

This article explains how to create timing entries in rapid-fire mode without entering bib numbers.

Sometimes racers are passing by so quickly, that you need to record a timing entry without having seen the participant’s bib number. RaceSplitter permits this in mass-start races when auto-split mode is disabled. (It is not supported in interval and wave start races, or when auto-split mode is enabled.)

Whenever a bib-less timing entry is recorded, RaceSplitter will create an entry assigned to a five-digit number beginning with 90001, e.g.:

  • 90001
  • 90002
  • 90003
  • 90015

In this way, rapid-fire entries can easily be identified and corrected after the race.

Of course, to correct the entries later would require that you’ve had someone manually writing down bib numbers to capture the finish order, so be sure to plan for this if you intend to use this feature.

Beyond the basics

After you've read the Getting Started Tutorial, dive deeper into more advanced topics.

Planning your event

As you plan the timing of your first event, here's what you'll want to think about.

Start types

RaceSplitter supports four race start types — mass, interval, wave and variable.


While the RaceSplitter app supports a single user-defined field, complex categorization is supported at the RaceSplitter website.

Multiple Devices

Easily time intermediate points on the course, with RaceSplitter's multi-device support.

Auto-split Mode

Auto-split mode is useful for timing multi-lap races, but should be disabled for most others.

The Timing Bar

The RaceSplitter "timing bar" allows you to assign the same time to multiple racers — useful when timing groups of people arriving together.

Racer Compensation

RaceSplitter supports the application of compensation factors in adaptive and handicap sports.

Automatic start time adjustment

Under certain circumstances, RaceSplitter will automatically adjust the race start time. This is both a benefit, and a risk.
