Experienced race team
We have been involved with racing for decades. Our experience includes running races, hosting races, to timing many races around the area. We understand what you are looking for in a race timer and provide our customers with a great experience for their races.
The Vestal Coal House (Mark and Andy Mushalla) hosts almost 40 races a year at the Vestal Rail Trail and Broome County Area. As their races grew, a need for a chip timing system was imminent. A chip timing system was purchased from Innovative Timing Systems and Gazelle Race Timing was born. Gazelle would time their own races and other races around the area. A third partner with a technical background was sought, and that is when Brian Cupp came on board. Brian has a Masters degree in Computer Science and is an avid runner in the community. He was a perfect fit.
Gazelle Race Timing serves all over New York, PA, and beyond. We are equipped to handle large races, but of course we enjoy the small ones as well. With our industry leading equipment, we provide instant and accurate results, 60 in TV scrolling live results monitor, printable results kiosk, and an reliable, enjoyable experience for your race. We have since timed several races in the area including the YMCA Corporate Challenge, The I Run For Half Marathon/Marathon, & 5K, Beers and Beasts 8K, Salt Springs Trail Race, the Octoberfast, the Neon Night Run, and Sunset Runway 5K, and many more.
