FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RaceMenu Announces Definitive Agreement to
Sell Timing Division to Second Wind Race Timing
BOSTON (April 20, 2017) – RaceMenu, Boston’s leading event management software company, announced today that Second Wind Race Timing will take over its race timing business, which helps manage some of the most popular road races across New England. The strategic pivot offers event organizers Second Wind’s broader suite of race timing services powered by RaceMenu’s superior event registration and mobile payments software.
“When RaceMenu began timing races in 2012, we did so with a plan of building better software for the timing industry,” said RaceMenu Founder J. Alain Ferry. “Now we’re moving on to the next phase of our plan, focusing on software to help both event organizers and race timing companies operate more efficiently and profitably. Second Wind has the resources and talent to bring New England’s race directors a more enhanced level of race timing services.”
With operations spanning Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, New England, Florida and Mexico, Second Wind Race Timing provides timing services for 1-mile fun runs and everyday 5Ks to 50-mile trail runs and triathlons. The new agreement between RaceMenu and Second Wind, which leverages a race timing partnership that began in 2013, is the ultimate pairing of leading-edge hardware, service and software.
“Alain and RaceMenu helped get our company off the ground, and the strategic partnership has been instrumental to our growth over the last several years,” said Joe Hutton, founder of Second Wind Race Timing. “I’m looking forward to continuing to provide the same level of superior service that race directors have become accustomed to receiving from RaceMenu.”
Under the new agreement, RaceMenu’s race timing staff will join Second Wind, which operates with the same RFID timing hardware and results software used by RaceMenu.
RaceMenu helps event organizers manage, promote and grow events more efficiently with event registration and analytics software and mobile payments technology.
