Six Types of Races Timed by Spire

The Spire detector can time many different types of races. Easy to set up and quick to take down during a race. There’s no cables, mats, or separate boxes to worry about. No need for flat surfaces or an AC power requirement. Long lasting batteries make it all happen.

1. Standard Race

A single Spire detector is both the start and finish of the race. This method used for many types of races includes school lap counting and military training assessments.

2. Start/Stop Race

One Spire detector can be used if the detector can be moved to the finish before the first runner. Used when the start and finish are in different locations.



3. Treasure Hunt

Mix and match any number of Spire detectors in any order. This method is used for path events and treasure hunt type races.


4. Stair Climb

Set up one Spire Detector as a starting point and a second Spire detector as a finish. Easy indoor/outdoor set up as there is no need for mats.


5. Loop With Way Point

One Spire detector is used as a start/finish and the other is used as the waypoint. Prove runners made it to the waypoint and back.


6. Concept Mix/Match

Two detectors working as one together. Excellent for detecting large races with wide starts and waypoints on a road.
