Split Second Timing Team
Rick Stern, President/Partner
Rick put his first pair of running shoes on in 1960 and has kept them on ever since. As a competitive athlete in high school, college as well as weekend road races, he learned the essential tools required to make an event a success. Applying his knowledge of how events work to his passion for running, he created Split Second Timing in 1978. Split Second Timing has been the leader in Race management in South Florida bringing Electronic Timing to the forefront and Rick was the first person in North America to commercially introduce the Championchip Timing System to Race Management. Rick takes pride in producing events that are highly organized and is detail orientated. Rick believes that in order to be the best in the business you must stay ahead of your competition and provide whatever your client requires!
