Performance Timing is a race
timing company based in Wausau, WI and serves the timing needs
of races throughout Wisconsin and beyond. We have been in
operation since 2006 and have steadily grown as word of mouth
has been a primary means of marketing. We serve as a
resource for both citizen events as well as high school
cross-country and track meets.
We feature two primary methods of timing; a chip
timing system from RFID Timing and
conventional timing using Summit Timing Systems timers.
Both systems provide accurate, reliable and timely results and
can be configured for the specific needs of your event.
Most of the work is done by me, John Burke, in
terms of setting up the software and timing configuration. I
will also manage the technical aspects of the race timing on
race day. I do get help from my family and I have been known on
occasion to enlist the help of a friend or two for some specific
functions. Depending on the timing option you choose, we may
request some volunteer help that you provide at the site. The
volunteer tasks are simple and non-technical in nature and most
people do quite well with just a little instruction.
Another part of Performance Timing is our Track and Field
operation. This is a group of individuals from the local school
district who have joined forces to administer track meets for
two of the local high schools using their FAT timing system.
We are also providing these services to other local high schools
on a case by case basis. We have been doing this
since 2008 and have handled many invitational, regional and
sectional competitions for high schools throughout Central
Wisconsin. Our primary
service is providing the timing services, but also provide
meet set-up by collecting the lineups from each of the teams
and setting up the meet. Meet set-up can be a stand-alone service,
if desired. Contact us if you would like to find out more about
