Total Race Solutions (TRS) was launched in 2006 and was the first timing company in the southeast to utilize a disposable bib mounted RFID chip to capture participant times. TRS is currently managed and operated by Ron Fuller who serves as the principal timer.
Ron has been involved in running since the late 90’s. He served on the board of directors of the Knoxville Track Club where he started working their finish lines as a volunteer. Ron has competed in ten full marathons and numerous shorter distance running events in the past thirty years.
One of Ron’s running heroes is the late Fred Lebow who founded the New York City Marathon and served as director of the race for twenty-five years. Lebow was known for his respect and support for the middle to back of the pack finishers in the marathon because he knew that they worked harder than the elites to finish the race. Ron and his staff strive to serve and respect all finishers regardless of their pace.
Mike is a founding partner of Total Race Solutions. Mike has an engineering background and is employed as an electrical engineer.
Mike is a runner and has competed in several marathons and numerous shorter distance running events over the years.
Mike is a back-up timer for TRS and helps design our procedures and processes for our timing crews. We utilize Mike’s expertise at our longer and more complex running events.
