Mass participation events, such as road races, triathlons, bike races and rides, and charity walks, produce a tremendous amount of waste. Recycling and composting is essential, but so is managing other waste that have raw material value, especially waste that can be made into products your event is already providing. Vinyl banners and fencing, fabric/canvas media, bike tubes, swim caps, wetsuits, bibs, etc. can be used to provide your event with bags, totes, personal accessories, staff notebooks, badges, VIP gifts and more.

ChronoTrack Systems Inc.(Timing Systems)

ChronoTrack Systems, Inc. is a timing and tracking company that has developed a cost-effective system for timing athletic events including road races using commercially available, EPCglobal-certified, UHF RFID tags and readers. ChronoTrack has developed the single-use 'D' Tag, an all-weather design for attaching an EPCglobal-certified, commercially available RFID tag to the foot. ChronoTrack Systems believes that when you consider the total life cycle of each of the major timing systems, the D-tag has a lowest overall environmental impact. Still, we recognize that because the D-tag is a single-use solution and athletes throw away the strip after the race is an issue that we have a responsibility to address. That's why ChronoTrack has introduced our D-tag Take-Back program for timing providers, event organizers and athletes. The Take-Back program provides bins and envelopes for the collection and return of used D-tags. ChronoTrack will then safely dispose of the units according to industry environmental standards, or reuse the tags.
