The RACE RESULT story began in 1999, when our now CEO Sönke Petersen was just 16 years old. He decided to develop a software solution for timekeeping in sports.
His product was such a success that it soon became the leading application in the German-speaking market.
But Sönke didn’t stop there. His next goal was a comprehensive package for timekeeping at sports events. After studying in the German city of Karlsruhe, in Barcelona, and at MIT and Harvard, Sönke joined forces with Nikias Klohr and Thorsten Vogel to found race result AG. We don’t want to toot our own horn — well, maybe a little — but our company has grown extraordinarily since then.
Our solutions for timekeeping in sports are used worldwide and offer the full package: software, hardware, online registration, race numbers, participant management and many other services. We’re proud to have many satisfied customers and steadily growing sales figures. For us, that’s clear proof that passion and creativity pay off in the long term.
You might be thinking this sounds like hot air. Don’t just take our word for it — have a look at the facts:
Every year, over 10,000 events including city runs, marathons and cycle races use solutions from RACE RESULT. And this number is growing. So you can rest assured that while we aim for the skies, we’ve got our feet on solid ground. But we wouldn’t be RACE RESULT if we didn’t dream bigger. Our goal is the Olympics, and we wouldn’t mind adding the Hawaii Ironman along the way. This drive to be the best has been in our company’s DNA since the beginning. And we’re always looking for people who will go the distance with us. Open-minded people who will help take us to the next level and strive to achieve the impossible.
