THE TIME CREW

Brendan Dagan

The most experienced timer in the crew, working in a variety of races from stand up paddle board to obstacle courses, he is the direction behind elitefeats' growth and services.  From events with over 6,000 participants to less than 60, he has been timing races pretty much since disposable bib tags were introduced to the timing industry and heads up the registration platform.

Jen Dagan

Long Island born and raised, she's timed in more states than anyone else on the team at 9 so far.   She was also part of the 2013 USATF 5K Road National Championships' timing team and has solo timed everything from a Mile to a Marathon.  She is in charge of our marketing design, social media presence and is also the operational point preparing for weekend races.

Larry Campbell

Also native to the Island, pulling on decades of programming experience he is the wizard of our result platform, turning ideas into reality.  When he is not busy coding he is in the field timing races.   A fan of timing ultra-marathons with multiple laps, like the USATF 30K National Race Walk Championships he timed in October 2016, he has a passion for precision timing.

ABOUT ELITEFEATS

Incorporated in 2014 after two of the founding partners, Brendan & Jen, timed hundreds of races throughout New England, New York, Pennsylvania & New Jersey as independent contractors.  Since its' inception elitefeats has provided essential event services to over 250 events and counting throughout NY, NJ, NH, CT & MA.

FEATured Facts

  • elitefeats Marketing
    Generates tens of thousands of dollars in registrations and donations for their events.

  • Ahead of the Competition
    December & November 2016; timed more races than the five other Long Island based timing companies did combined and twice as many races with 1,200 finishers or more.  Our Proprietary photo software means your photos are online at the event as long as there is cell service!

  • Thanksgiving Day
    Coordinated timing at three different races with a cumulative total of almost 6,000 registrants: matching 15,000 photos from seven different photographers, and three different videos.  All uploaded, synced and emailed to each finisher the same day.

  • The Bottom Line
    What we charge is never what we cost – event revenue generated through our marketing regularly offsets 50% or more of an invoice.

Streamlining services to a single point of contact, elitefeats saves events time and money while increasing participation through segmented email blast campaigns and social media marketing.

Amenities that surpass even the largest timing companies, an event still gets the boutique feel of a local business when working with elitefeats.

Innovating to create better experiences for participants, sponsors and race directors well before the gun goes off and long after the last person finishes. We are always just a call, text or email away and happy to sit down to discuss how your event can be elite!

Unique Registration

Sit back and relax.
Lots of companies say they make a custom registration page but let's face it, sticking your race logo on their site is not quite as unique as you'd hoped right? Well, we design it to look and feel like your race.

We get it, Life's Busy
You're too swamped to create your own registration page's You have a job, family and your own running around to do. You've got a race to organize for Pete's sake! Your event will look professional and custom made with a little collaboration on your end and a lot of hard work on ours.

Send us photos, sponsor logos, last year's flyer or even just an email about your 1st year event and we will put a rough draft together. You can change or add sponsor logos and information at any time. We are an email, text or call away so relax, we got you!

Event Marketing & Event Growth

Unlike other timing companies we cost much less than what we charge.

It all starts with getting word out about your event. With elitefeats our marketing is driven to increase participants, so we offset our timing costs from the additional registrations: win-win!

In just the last year our marketing has generated tens of thousands of dollars in registrations and donations for events and here is how:

Want to add in a sponsor logo to any of the marketing campaigns? No problem!

Our marketing team is effective through targeting cut offs on t shirts/swag, price increases in registration and registration cut off dates. We want to talk to you about a custom marketing plan that will work for your event, when works best for you?

Customized Race Swag

Why deal with more vendors?

Bibs are complimentary.

No need to be pestered with designing them yourself - pretty sure you have enough on your plate already. Send us your logos and our team will get a mock up to you ASAP. We work with you to only print as many as you need for your event but if you have a record turnout, no worries! Our team comes prepared with extra bibs to handle that happy problem of extra runners.

Need shirts and don't want to deal with the hassle of shopping around for the best price/quality? Ask us for a quote! We work with a number of vendors to get your athletic apparel on time, in style and under budget.

Our reputable network of screen printers insure you get the best price and whether it is a hoodie, a tech t or classic cotton we make sure you get the best quality too.

Industry Leading Timing Equipment & Scoring Software

You're working with the pros

We provide reliable event timing by utilizing the best scoring software along with German engineered and manufactured hardware.

With our electronic race timing system we guarantee superior detection rates allowing for fluid, fast and live results.

Our disposable bibs are outfitted with SmartTrac tags, the same trusted brand used internationally for road races and other major endurance events such as the Boston Marathon. Our timing software is the trusted brand for 1,000's of events yearly and is sanctioned by the NCAA for scoring College XC Meets.

And the award goes to ...

Perhaps you've got a speedy contingent or maybe you have a unique award ceremony.

Want to score the fastest locals or have a Wheelchair division? Multiple distances? Got Relays? Just keep us in the loop. We build your race days before the event so that we're ready to roll Day-Of. Your awards ceremony will go off without a hitch so you can hand out those awesome awards!

While your participants are waiting for the awards ceremony to start they can check out the online results platform or maybe they've gotten their personal results via text message/email.

Live Results Platform

The event doesn't end at the finish line.

We get it, time counts during the race and when waiting for results.

So, faster than we can print them they are already texted, emailed + posted online. Runners can grab their smart phones, check a text or email – even go to our website and compare their results to their rivals!

Like that kind of speed?

Finish line photos, watermarked with your sponsor/event logos, are up within hours of the event. They can even be from multiple photographers so you don't miss a shot. Every finisher can also watch a video within seconds of their own finish!

Keep the event, and its' cause, going with your participants sharing the pictures when they get home. Did we mention that they can share their results to Facebook at the event with our live results too? You might say we are a results driven company and if that is what you are looking for then let's talk.

Free Photos & Video

We provide that extra exposure.

We make sure your participant gets their finish line photos and video.

Finish line photos, watermarked with your sponsor/event logos, are up within hours of the event and can even be from multiple photographers. A finish line video is synced to each finisher's time within one business day too.

With our personalized post race email chances that your participants share their photos to social media increase exponentially. This means happier racers and because the sponsors logos are on those photos better exposure for your sponsors.

Post Race Emails

Photos are posted within an hour of the last finisher; videos are posted same-day. We make sure everyone is notified via email right after your event.

We keep that post-race high momentum going by updating folks that their photos and video are ready. They click on the embedded link in their personalized email and voila – travel to their individual results where they find their finish line pics.

Runners will share their day's accomplishment with their friends via social media AKA instant post-race marketing for you!

Testimonials

Event Director Satisfaction - Rest easy, it's over.

When it is all over, the last participant is long gone and the equipment is broken down, it is the experiences of the event directors that always makes us feel the best.

Your tireless efforts are what make these events happen and we recognize all your hard work. We go above and beyond for you, your sponsors and your participants so that you can rest easier. Whether it is helping a 1st year event figure out how many volunteers they need on the course or a 20th year event grow to the next level we are here for you. The next event is around the corner and elitefeats is always here to help. So drop us a line - we really want to work with your event! But don't just take our word for it, here's what other race directors have to say;

Barbara S. - Run for the Health of It 5K
“The day of the race went flawlessly and I never had to worry about the timing aspect. Runners have had great things to say and look forward to next year again. We appreciate your organization, efficiency and professionalism!” Event Page

Mike P. - Lincoln's Birthday Marathon and Half Marathon
"Congratulations and thanks for your efforts at yesterday's inaugural Lincoln's Birthday International Marathon and Half Marathon. Everything seemed to go as smoothly as possible and you can take pride in a job very well done indeed. The results are quite readable and seem to be complete and accurate." Event Page

Rich I. - BUS 6-Hour Pajama Romp
Our organization, the Broadway Ultra Society (BUS), used EliteFeats for our 6-hour run in July and was greatly satisfied. EliteFeats was professional, accommodating and first rate in every detail. I did not know organizing a race could be easier. They took care of a lot of issues. Looking forward to work with them again. Event Page

Lesli H. - NCPD PO Memorial 5k
We used Elitefeats for the NCPD PO Memorial 5k on August 10, 2015. We have used other timing services over the years but I went with Elitefeats this year mainly to support Jen. I would use them again mainly because of how they performed. The team was accommodating, cared, were involved and the follow up was excellent. Entrants liked the text messages with their own results that were received before most people reached their cars. Well done guys, thanks again! Leslie Event Page

John McHugh - Mt. Sinai Turkey Trot
Thanks once again to the staff from Elite Feats Timing. With your assistance our annual Turkey Trot 5K and Kids Fun Run 1K was a resounding success! Your attention to detail, professionalism and ability to anticipate our needs truly set you apart from the competition. Your staff was early to the event and were generally a pleasure to deal with before, during and after the event. Thanks again! John McHugh Mt. Sinai High School Event Page
