In a nutshell, it works like this. If you are familiar with the parkrun timing and results process you'll find it to be very familiar.
Techsportise is for running race organisers to create and manage their running races, as well as, crucially, provide a simple and free timing and results app and service. It's not designed for runners/participants with the exception of race signup and results.
By instantly timing and recording your finishers on your smart phones you can process results immediately. This means:
In short, it saves you time on race day and makes your results quicker, giving your competitors a reason to want to come back to this, or another race that you organise.
Our results provide instant age grading and also category podiums making it super fast for you to award age group prizes.
Premium races come with the the following great features
These extra features add a great layer of professionalism and interaction which can drive traffic to your club, race or other races and keep people coming back all for a low price.
We charge £1.50 + 3% of the entry price, for each premium race entry, only for those who enter through our Online Entry page. We support a few different currencies, and this fee is converted to local currency.
Entries through the Administration portal or App (for example, for Postal entries) are free.
Very importantly though, this includes credit card processing fees! So you receive ALL of the rest of the entry fee.
We partner with Stripe Stripe are the global leader in online payments ad they provide us with the mechanism to make sure you as a race organiser receive your entry fees instantly.
If you already have a Stripe account, you can link your Techsportise profile to it. If you don't, its really easy to create a Stripe account through your Techsportise portal login.
When you create an account with Stripe, you provide the bank details where you want your funds to end up. We send you the money instantly and it will be in your bank account when it is processed. However it is up to you and Stripe to determine how frequently the funds move from your Stripe account to your Bank account.
Here is an example (not representative of actual charges).
The money will be placed in your Stripe account immediately after it has been processed. However it is up to you to move the money from Stripe into your account.
