Race Timer makes it incredibly easy to time race events with multiple participants. Users can record individual finishing times, assign bib numbers and participant names as well as whether or not they finished the race. The results can then be viewed and shared via email.

Answer to my prayers!
I needed a way to record race times for the Healthy Kids Running Series races, which includes short races (50 yards) with dozens of child participants. This app worked perfectly, allowing me to record times with one tap, especially useful for when I had 3 or 4 racers cross the line in a group. Unlike some other race timing apps I tested, this one was able to log the results quickly without needing to toggle between runners or restart the clock.
Even better, once the times were logged, I was able to go back in and add the bib numbers and participant names to the race results. The full results can then be shared via email, with the app formatting everything into a clean, well-organized table.
This app is exactly what I was looking for, and I can't recommend it enough.
Good app wish it had option to use iPhone time vs starting the race clock this would make using multiple devices for start and finishes much easier to sync.
Adding names to bib numbers before the race is important to getting out fast results. You also need to edit the results while the race is running, or at least after, just in case you miss a runner or if you record a split by accident. Could be a real nice apps with some upgrades.
