The Chattanooga Track Club offers timing services, equipment services, or equipment rental for races being held in the Chattanooga area.  Please contact our Timing Manager for information regarding pricing and availability: CTC can provide advise on all aspects of putting on a quality event. Course measurement and USATF course certification can also be done.

Please note that a contract requiring signature will be issued for services and/or equipment rental.  Invoice for rental or services provided will be issued after the event.


Race Director must plan to coordinate pick up and drop off equipment before/after the race.  Typically pick up will occur the Friday prior to the event and drop off will occur the Monday following the event.
NOTE:  Equipment must be returned in the same condition as it was received.  Lessee will sign an agreement agreeing to cost and assuming responsibility for damages while in possession of equipment.
