Welcome to 5K Sports Race Management, your source for race management services.  As a runner and experienced Race Director, I operate a race event management business that services in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York.       

One of the special aspects of most races is that they usually benefit local charities and help others and my race event management business allows me to participate in a sport that I love and help other Race Directors make their events successful.

5K Sports Race Management is a local company that is based upon the belief that all races deserve to be timed professionally for a reasonable price, which leaves more money for your charity...and that is what is important.

We have been timing & managing events in New England since 1995.  Road races, cross country, nordic skiing and swimming events.  We have been in business for 19 years!

 Our Mission Statement

Provide high quality Race Management Services at reasonable fees in order to support race organizers in donating more event funds to community charities.  We pride ourselves in quality not quanity.

Jim, outstanding day! You folks did a great job. I am particularly impressed with how quickly you got the results to me. I think it is important to do the trophies asap after the race.

Nice job and see you next year!
