Stimulating Weekend Action

raceahead, The UKs leading Sports Events Services company ( are currently looking for staff to work at weekends timing mass participating sports events in the UK; Running Races, Triathlon, Duathlon, etc.. We time large and small events from 250 people in a small triathlon to The Great North Run with 50,000 entrants. raceahead is a growing company and as such we need to increase the raceahead qualified timers we have. At the moment we have a number of timers, they have undergone on-the-job training with experienced staff and now take charge of the timing on-event. Our timers usually already have full or part-time employment, but its not a pre-requisite, they enjoy the flexibility of ad-hoc well paid weekend work. Most timers undertake either 1 or 2 events per month between March & October. Although events are usually available every weekend. The events are usually on a Sunday although many of them start early and are located such that an overnight stay prior to the event is required. You would begin as an assistant and be given full training both on and off the job until we and you consider you are ready to take on the responsibility of being a Timer. We pay a standard rate for a 1 day event and an additional sum if an overnight stay is required. All expenses are covered, vehicle hire, accommodation, subsistence etc.. In 2006 we timed over 100 events, covering the whole of the UK from Cornwall to Inverness. Isle of Man to Kent.
Our only pre-requisites are that you hold a (relatively) clean driving licence, are professional in your manner, work well with customers and thrive on a challenge. Once trained, at events you will be the face of raceahead and so we have to ensure you are the image we want to portray. If you are interested and if you know of anyone who might be please contact us.

Including an overnight Stay £250
