Alliance Running offers two types of race timing and scoring services. The traditional pull tag service is suitable for smaller races. This service is cheaper than chip timing; however, the accuracy of this system is not as reliable as in chip timing services.

Chip timing has quickly become the norm among race timing companies. The system offers the most accurate results. However, there can be some glitches occasionally.
